A Morgan County man who beat his teenage son with a golf club was sentenced to eight years in state prison.
37 year old Toby Curry of Mooresville pleaded guilty to several charges as part of a plea deal.
The charges all stem from an April 28, 2013 incident where Curry, who was drunk according to witnesses, struck his son in the head and back with golf clubs during a post-prom party at a Putnam County home.
The 17-year-old son required stitches and had to be treated for other injuries.
Apparently the boy challenged his father when he threatened two girls and that is when Curry beat his son.
