Macon man accused of beating dad with gun released from jail

Logan Nettles, 19, of Lizella appeared before a Bibb County magistrate judge Wednesday. He charged with aggravated assault.

Logan Nettles, the man arrested for allegedly beating his father with a gun in July, was released from Bibb County jail Friday.

According to county jail records, Nettles was released just after 11 p.m. on $8,450.

Nettles, 19, was booked into the jail July 18 after a domestic disturbance between Nettles and his father, Clint Nettles, at the family's Lizella home at 156 Briar Creek Trail.

Clint Nettles told Bibb County deputies that his son hit him in the head with a gun, telling him, "Next time, I will kill you." The fight started after Logan Nettles took his father's cell phone, cigarettes and lighter, according to a Bibb County Sheriff's Office incident report.

The Lizella home where Logan Nettles beat his father is well known to Bibb County deputies.

Just five days before the domestic incident between the father and son, a 16-year-old Bibb County boy was shot dead their during an alleged gun swap gone wrong, according to the sheriff's office.

No one has been charged in the death of Chase Gillis who reportedly showed up at the house looking to trade a Glock pistol for an AR-15.

Logan Nettles was there when Gillis died along with a third man, 23-year-old David Billingsley.

Billingsley is the one who reportedly shot the teen alleging it was in self defense after Gillis held a gun to his head, according to a Bibb County Sheriff's Office incident report.

Neighbors spent months calling the Bibb County Sheriff's Office about problems at Nettles' home.

Deputies were called to 156 Briar Creek Trail 19 times between May 13 and July 17, according to sheriff's office documents 13WMAZ obtained through Open Records request.
