LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A fight between a father and his teenage son at a Louisville restaurant sent both of them to hospitals.

Witnesses said the father was on top of his 17-year-old son, punching and choking him Monday night at Gatti's Pizza on Lyndon Lane. Both of them used forks as weapons, according to the witnesses.  

Officers arrested the father, Jeffrey Stepp, 38, and charged him with assault and wanton endangerment. He was taken to Baptist Health Louisville for treatment. Stepp received stitches above his left eye and suffered a fork injury to the back of his head.

His son went to Kosair Children's Hospital for treatment of facial injuries.
