A 38-year-old man is in custody after authorities said he pointed a shotgun at another man and beat him with it.
Darrel Ray Fitts, 5323 Beach St., will face charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, Fitts pointed a double-barreled shotgun at William Andujar and then struck him with it about eight times on his head and body. Fitts then put the shotgun inside his house and left carrying a small silver handgun and pointing it at Andujar.
Deputies ran a records check on Fitts and found an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in court on a marijuana possession charge.
Fitts remained in the Pasco County jail at Land O'Lakes on Sunday in lieu of $21,013.
