PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – The wife and son of the late former congressman C.W. Bill Young were arrested this weekend in Indian Rocks Beach, an arrest report states.
According to the charge report, Beverly Angello Young, 62, was jailed on charges of driving under the influence. Her son, Patrick Young, 30, was arrested for battery on a person 65 years of age or older.
According to the affidavits, Pinellas County deputies were called to JD’s Restaurant and Lounge Friday at 9:48 p.m. after a fight broke out. Investigators said Patrick Young was dancing at the establishment when he and another person dancing bumped into each other several times.
Deputies said the two argued and the confrontation escalated when Young purposely continued to bump into the shoulder of the victim and his wife.
The two began to wrestle and ended up on the ground, the affidavit states.
The victim then retreated to the bathroom to wash his face after receiving lacerations. Detectives said Young followed the victim to the bathroom, put him in a headlock and smashed his face into a mirror.
Investigators said Beverly Young left the location with her son and was pulled over on Gulf Boulevard and 4th Avenue. Deputies said Young drove over a cement median to make a left turn when the sign stated right turn only.
Beverly Young was charged with DUI.
Beverly’s late husband and Patrick’s father C.W. Young was the longest-serving Republican member of Congress at the time of his death. He served the state of Florida in the United States House of Representatives from 1971 to 2013. Pinellas County’s veteran’s hospital was renamed after young in 2014.
“Everybody has families that have arguments. Unfortunately, his son and his wife, they wouldn’t even be in the newspapers or we wouldn’t be talking about this if their father hadn’t been so prominent,” said political analyst, Barry Edwards. “His economic impact in Tampa Bay is two, three billion dollars a year and continues to be a legacy.”WHAT OTHERS ARE CLICKING ON RIGHT NOW:
