Irondale Man Charged With Assault

An Irondale man has been charged after an alleged physical altercation last week with his daughter and son-in-law.

The Daily Journal reports that 42-year old Michael Daniel Keesee has been charged with second and third degree domestic assault, first degree tampering and unlawful use of a weapon, all felonies.

According to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, Keesee attempted to choke his son-in-law and also threw his daughter against a wall while intoxicated.

In addition, Keesee apparently fired off a few shots from his .22 caliber firearm during the incident.

The son-in-law and daughter both fled the scene and reported the altercation to the police.

Keesee would later admit in an interview with police that he did indeed fire off his gun.

Keesee also said that the incident with the son-in-law was normal behavior for those two.

Keesee is out of the Washington County Detention Facility on a $25,000 bond.
