    Details:

    At approximately 1:30 a.m. on June 7, 2014 deputies responded to person down call at 6301 Flamingo Drive in Apollo Beach.

    It appears that the son and his girlfriend had come to visit Brittle Sr.  They had all gone drinking at a local bar (do not have the name) in Apollo Beach not far from David Brittle, Sr's residence.  Brittle Jr. thought his girlfriend was talking to other men at the bar and he got mad, left the bar and walked back to his Dad's residence.

    The father, the son's girlfriend and another female returned to the house and were all confronted by Brittle Jr. when they walked into the yard.  Father and son got into a verbal argument which escalated to physical.  Fire Rescue responded and pronounced the father deceased.

    At this time there are no charges.  An autopsy will be performed to determine cause of death and investigators will be consulting with the State Attorney's Office.

    The investigation continues.
