NASHUA, N.H. (AP) – Court records say a former Nashua, N.H., police chief was beaten and strapped to a chair, allegedly by his grown son.

The Telegraph reports that Clinton Largy, who retired in 2000 after 32 years on the city’s police department, had his jaw and eye sockets broken during the beating.

The son – 42-year-old Eric Largy of Nashua – is charged with kidnapping, domestic violence and assault on his father Wednesday night at the son’s home.

Nashua police don’t identify victims of domestic violence, but say the alleged assault began as an argument and turned into a fist fight. The elder Largy – who now lives in Hampton – eventually got free and called for help.
