Brothers in booze end spat with weapons

Construction workers 1. Farmers 0. The showdown happened on Monday when two brothers-in-law decided to start drinking at 8am.

As you might imagine, the early morning tippling set the stage for a verbal disagreement later that then escalated into violence.

Police said the farmer had taunted the younger man by pointing a stick at his face.

Outraged, the construction worker then clubbed the farmer on the head with a hoe. The victor is no doubt celebrating in his jail cell.
