March 1st, 2011 by Staff

ASTOR, Fla. – A Lake County man suffered a 10-inch slash from his back to his abdomen after drinking the last beer, deputies said.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office said Jeffery Wilkerson was at a home on Cherry Tree Road in Astor with Jason Higdon Sr. and Jason Higdon Jr. on Friday when the Higdons attacked him during an altercation that was sparked over beer.
Witnesses intervened and called for help for Wilkerson, 46. He was flown to Halifax Medical Center in Daytona for treatment. His condition was not released, but he was well enough to give a statement to deputies.
Deputies said Higdon Sr., 43, and Higdon Jr., 21, fled the scene of the attack, but were later arrested in Seminole County. Both were charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. They are being held on $15,000 bond each.
