Man hits boyfriend with Billy Bass


Officers were called Sunday afternoon to a residence in Sebastian in connection with a reported domestic battery. Upon arriving at the home, cops found Larry Timmerman with a laceration on his head, an injury the victim said was caused by a Big Mouth Billy Bass thrown by Gregory Carney, 54.

In interviews with Timmerman and Carney, cops determined that the men--who have been domestic partners for 17 years--had been quarreling earlier in the day. At one point, Carney went into the den and began playing with his singing fish. Timmerman said that Carney “continued doing this just to aggravate him.”
