The group then attended the front counter at the caravan park where Taylor Jnr started to attack a man in his 60s while holding a machete.
During the disturbance, Allam, 31, of Coldharbour Lane, Kemsley, used a large Katana-bladed knife to scare off the victim’s family and members of the public by waving the knife at them.
Oliver Taylor, 25, of Canterbury Road, Sittingbourne, then used a baseball bat where he inflicted further head injuries to the victim.
The three Taylors then surrounded the victim where he was punched in the face knocking him unconscious.
They then fled the scene leaving the victim on the floor and continued to shout at other people in the park on their way out.
After the incident, the man was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for his injuries and has since recovered.
Following an investigation, all four men were arrested and later charged with one count each of violent disorder. They each admitted the charges and were jailed on August 31, 2021, at Maidstone Crown Court.
Jason Taylor Jnr was jailed for two years and seven months while his father, 50, of Mountview, Borden, was handed a two-year and six-month sentence. Carl Allam and Oliver Taylor were both sentenced to two years and five months in jail.
Detective Sergeant Shaun Vidgeon of Swale’s Criminal Investigation Department said: "This was a frightening incident which happened in broad daylight in front of many terrified people including children.
"The victim was subjected to a prolonged and vicious assault, which resulted in a complex and time-consuming investigation in order to identify those responsible, and I’m pleased that a jail term has been imposed on all of those involved."
