APOLLO BEACH (FOX 13) -
Hillsborough County Deputies are investigating a death in Apollo Beach.
Detectives tell us David Charles Brittle, 42, was found dead outside his home on Flamingo Drive at around 1:30 a.m. Saturday.
Brittle's son, David Charles Brittle Jr, and his girlfriend had come to visit Brittle Sr. They had all gone drinking at a local not far from Brittle Sr's home.
While they were out, 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 dead at the scene.
No charges have been filed. An autopsy will be performed to determine cause of death and investigators will be working with the State Attorney's Office.
The investigation continues.
