A Cumby teen was accused of assault by lawn mower Saturday afternoon, according to sheriff’s reports.

Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Richard Greer and Deputy Jason Lavender were dispatched at 2:09 p.m. Oct. 10 to a Cumby address on the Interstate 30 south service road. A 17-year-old’s temper was reported to be out of control to the point his family needed assistance.

Upon arrival, deputies discerned the Cumby teen had assaulted his father using a zero turn lawn mower.

The father claimed when he tried to give his son instruction on how to mow the yard, the teen became irritated and intentionally drove the mower forward, striking his father with the mower, causing injury. The father allegedly had injuries to his arm and leg.

Consequently, the 17-year-old was taken into custody at 4:43 p.m. Oct. 10 for the alleged assault by lawn mower. The teen remained in Hopkins County jail Monday, Oct. 12, on the Class A misdemeanor a charge of family violence assault causing bodily injury charge.
