A father and son are facing assault charges after an argument over the Philadelphia Eagles at a South Jersey bar turned violent.


The duo got into a heated discussion about the football team with two other men inside Joe’s Tavern, located at 548 Williamstown Road in Winslow Township, on Thursday evening, according to police.

The fight moved outside, where 56-year-old Christopher Hoffman and his son, 32-year-old Brittan Holland, beat up the two other men, police said.





One of the victims, the 26-year-old son of the tavern’s owner, suffered a broken nose in the scuffle. The other victim, a 36-year-old man, was treated for several facial fractures.

Hoffman and Holland fled the bar in a vehicle after the altercation. Their car was located outside their Madely Court home in Sicklerville, and officers found the two inside, both covered in blood, police said.

Hoffman was charged with third-degree aggravated assault and released on a summons. Holland was charged with second-degree assault and taken to the Camden County Correctional Facility, police said.




At the time of his arrest, Hoffman was wearing Pittsburgh Steelers slippers. Holland told officers he was a Dallas Cowboys fan.
