Tampa man arrested for throwing metal pipe at man in Pasco County

DADE CITY, Fla. (WFLA) — A Tampa man was arrested in Dade City Tuesday night after deputies say he threw a pipe at another man.

Deputies were called to Marion Avenue just before 6 p.m. for a verbal disturbance.

Once on-scene, deputies found a victim who claimed 33-year-old Keith Lynn Allison Jr. threw a three-foot metal pipe at him. The victim had a laceration on his side where he said the pipe hit him.

A witness at the scene claimed Allison threw the pipe during an argument.

Allison was arrested for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon because deputies say the pipe could have seriously injured or killed the victim if it hit him in the head.
