According to the complaint his nephew, who was identified as Cooper,  struck him with a stick and fled the scene in a grey sport utility vehicle before deputies arrived, Ivey said.

The complaint told deputies he had retreated into his home and the nephew tried to make entry by breaking a glass insert in the door and reaching in to open the door. He was unsuccessful in entering the residence and fled the scene.

Deputies observed that the complaint had bruising above his right eye and red marks on his face.

The complaint told deputies he and his nephew had an argument over the phone and the nephew showed up at the residence uninvited.
