FORT MYERS, Fla. - A man in Lee County did everything he could to protect his son from bullies, including pulling a gun.

Deputies said the man held two teenagers at gunpoint after they supposedly threatened his son and tried to beat up his son. When the deputies arrived on scene the father had a shotgun and a Glock on a teen who was down on the ground.

The deputy took the teen into custody. A second suspect was arrested a few blocks away from the home.

Both teens will face prowling charges. The father was not arrested.
