Collinsville, Illinois (The Weekly Vice) - Timothy Neal, 44, and his twin sons, Timothy Neal and Daniel Neal, both 18, were arrested Saturday after they allegedly pummeled a man during a drunken disagreement over demons.
According to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, the four men were at a bonfire when a conversation about religion turned into an argument and the father and son tag-team attacked the victim.
Investigators say they didn’t know what specific religious issue prompted the fight but the talk of demons seemed to push the fight over the edge.
“The victim had been talking about religion and demons when the other three became upset and started whipping up on him,” said Madison County Sheriff’s Capt. Brad Wells.
The victim had injuries to his face and was taken to an area hospital.
All three men were booked into the Madison County Jail on a charge of felony mob action. The twin sons were also charged with illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor. Neal and his sons’ bond were set at $30,000 each.
