HUDSON, TX (KTRE) -

 Hudson Police officers arrested a 19-year-old man on Tuesday after he allegedly got into an argument with his 65-year-old grandmother over a TV remote and then hit her with a phone when she tried to use it to call 911 on him.

Nicklous Ryan Edwards-Cantu, of Lufkin, is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on a third-degree felony charge of injury to the elderly, a Class A misdemeanor interfering with an emergency call charge and two capias pro fine traffic warrants. Collectively, his bail has been set at $5,424.

According to the arrest affidavit, Hudson Police officers were dispatched to a home in the 500 block of Walnut Hill Road on July 11 in reference to a disturbance. When they arrived on the scene, Edwards-Cantu's 55-year-old grandmother told them she had gotten into an argument with her grandson over a television remote.

The argument escalated, and Edwards-Cantu allegedly smashed the remote control. Fearing for her safety, his grandmother picked up the phone and tried to call 911, the affidavit stated. However, Edwards-Cantu allegedly took the phone away from his grandmother and used its handset to hit her on the left side of her face.

Then the grandmother used her cell phone to call 911, the affidavit stated. Once Edwards-Cantu realized that she had completed the 911 call, he allegedly said he wasn't going to jail and fled from the residence.

The Hudson Police officers took photographs of the injury to the victim's face.
