Tristen’s dad was arrested at the family home in Voluisa County, Florida, on the morning of December 24, reports TMZ.

That resulted in Kevin allegedly getting physical with his son, elbowing, and eventually, clotheslining him. Cops were called to the home and arrested Kevin because he was seen as the “primary aggressor.” Around two hours later, cops were called back to the house when Tristen’s mom called 911 claiming her son was attacking her. Police then took Tristen into custody.
