JENNINGS, La. (KLFY) – A man is now in jail for allegedly assaulting his brother with a knife and trying to run him over with his vehicle, according to the Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Commander Christopher Ivey said the initial incident happened Monday at a home on LA 26 in Jennings.

The victim went to the sheriff’s office to file a complaint against his brother George McZeal, Jr., 54, of Jennings.

As the victim was leaving the sheriff’s office, McZeal allegedly drove by and began shouting profanities at him and “attempted run over the victim,” according to Ivey.

The victim ran back to the sheriff’s office where deputies say McZeal allegedly kicked the victim in the leg.

McZeal was arrested on two counts of aggravated assault and simple battery. He was booked into the Jefferson Davis Parish jail without bond.
