Man From Washington County Charged After Alleged Assault With Rock

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.
