ANGELINA COUNTY, Texas (KTRE) - The Angelina County Sheriff's Office charged a man Saturday for allegedly attacking his 80-year-old father.

Alan Scott Johns, 50, is charged with injury to elderly.

According to Lt. Pete Cooper, deputies were called to a residence on Asa Read Road at 5:38 p.m. Saturday in reference to the attack. Cooper said deputies learned Johns had pushed his father, who is on oxygen, down to the ground and kicked him.

Cooper said Johns has been abusive to his father before, but this time the attack was enough to charge him with the felony crime.

Johns bonded out of the Angelina County Jail for $5,000.
