Now here's a class act: Dad JOHN MCSHANE SR. gets into some "heated words" with his son, and breaks a beer bottle over the son's head. And I thought that stuff only happened in cowboy movies.

VERNON - Heated words between a father and son at Main Street bar became violent when the older man broke a beer bottle over his son's head, police said.
John McShane Sr., 56, is now in police custody, facing assault and breach of peace charges. His 35-year-old son, John McShane Jr., is recovering at Hartford Hospital.
The fight at Pizza Palace & Restaurant was reported at 10:12 p.m. Monday, police said.
Police say they are searching for a second suspect who joined the father-and-son fight and broke a pool cue over the younger McShane's head.
McShane Jr. was taken to Rockville General hospital with serious cuts to his head, police said. He was then transferred to Hartford Hospital where he remains in critical, but stable, condition.
