VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. – A famous wrestler and his son were arrested for battery during two separate incidents at their Florida home on Christmas.

Just after 12 a.m., WWE star Kevin Nash called police, saying his son was drunk and argumentative.

Nash said his son, Tristen, spit on him during a physical altercation.

Nash admitted to police that he pinned Tristen to the ground, but said he was only protecting his wife.

However, Tristen told authorities that his father started the altercation by berating him and his girlfriend.

He said Nash used a wrestling move that caused him to black out.

Officers arrested Nash on battery charges, saying he was the “primary aggressor.”

A few hours later, police were called back to home after Tristen’s mother said the teenager attacked her after police left the first time.

Tristen was also arrested on battery charges.
