A man from Cadet has been charged in Washington County Court after striking another man in the head with a rock during an early November incident.
According to the Daily Journal, 53-year old Edward Shane Jones is facing charges of second-degree assault, armed criminal action, and unlawful use of a weapon.
Jones apparently blocked a road with his vehicle, and then got out of the car and approached the alleged victim who was attempting to pass.
Jones grabbed a baseball-sized rock, threw it at the man’s head, and then drove away.
The victim suffered a laceration above his left eye from the attack.
Jones was recently booked into Washington County Jail, and then posted a $40,000 bond.
