Longtime Seminole County Commissioner Chairman John Horan was the “primary aggressor” during a physical altercation with his son Wednesday morning.

Horan was allegedly arguing with his adult son over living arrangements when things got physical. The Commissioner’s wife says that her husband slapped their son, while Horan’s son states that his father punched him in the face.

Winter Springs Police Department responded to the home and arrested Horan after his son left the home and called the authorities to report the incident.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Horan will appear in court for a hearing on Thursday. The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office inmate information portal states that Horan may not be bailed out and will have to at least spend tonight in county jail.

It is unclear if Horan will be forced to take a leave of absence from the Seminole County Commission or if he is considering resigning his post. Governor Rick Scott has in large part steered away from taking direct action on cases like this, usually allowing the process play out and reasses at the time a ruling is made by the local court system.
