A Tampa pol wound up in jail after he celebrated Father's Day with a good-old family fight, punching his two sons during a black and blue Sunday brawl.

Brian Blair, a former Hillsborough County Commissioner, was charged with two felony counts of child abuse after he punched his two sons, leaving bumps and bruises on the two boys.

The 52-year-old pushed his 17-year-old son, according to sheriff's deputies, then grabbed him and punched him in the face when the teen tried to walk away. He then grabbed his younger son by the throat and punched him on the head.

Killer Bees' Masked Confusion

Blair is a former professional wrestler who was part of the WWF's Killer Bees tag-team. He was elected to the county commission in 2004, but lost his seat last year.

Blair was arrested in the early hours of Sunday morning and is expected to appear before a judge today.
