LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A Lufkin man who got into an argument with his grandmother over a TV remote and then hit with a phone accepted a plea bargain deal that reduced the original felony injury to elderly charge to a Class A misdemeanor assault.

Nicklous Ryan Edwards-Cantu, 19, appeared in Judge Gerald Goodwin's court Friday morning. As part of the deal, he will be serving a 40-day stint in the Angelina County Jail. He was originally booked into the jail on July 29.

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.
