UPDATE: DeLand Police have charged 72-year-old Dan Johnson with aggravated battery in the stabbing of his nephew, 29-year-old Michael Johnson. Through interviews with both men, detectives determined that Dan Johnson has issues with how much time Michael Johnson spent in the bathroom.
The incident began after Dan knocked on the bathroom door twice, telling Michael to get out of the bathroom. The second time, Michael opened the door, saying he'd only be in there for a short time. That's when Dan decided Michael was being "disrespectful" and stabbed him several times. Dan claimed that he felt threatened but detectives could not find evidence that Michael had verbally or physically attacked his uncle.
Dan Johnson is in the Volusia County Jail, being held on no bond.
