Question about a country singer's sexual orientation leads to a fight

SAFETY HARBOR — People argue about the strangest things.

Neighbors Joe Harland Capes and Ronald Richards were in Richards' trailer on Thursday night, "arguing over Conway Twitty's sexual orientation."

Apparently, those were fightin' words about the country music singer, who died in 1993.

A preliminary arrest report says Capes shoved Richards, and Richards shoved Capes, and then Capes punched Richards, breaking his glasses and causing bleeding from his left eye.

Capes, 44, was released on his own recognizance Friday from the Pinellas County Jail. He could not immediately be reached for comment.
