Deputies said they were called to a fight between a Chesnee father and son that turned physical Sunday.

Spartanburg County deputies said they were called to a Sandy Ford Road home where they found the victim, who told investigators he got into a fight with his son.

The son, identified as James "Jamie" Aaron Elder, punched his dad in the face and chest, then threw his dad's cell phone to ground, destroying it, according to the sheriff's office report.

The report said as Elder, 38, fled from the home, he ripped the front door off the hinges.

According to deputies, Elder's father had a mark on his face and his injuries were more severe due to his other conditions including macular degeneration, a heart condition and a cast he was wearing, making it more difficult for him to escape from the attack.

A few hours later, deputies said they found Elder at his home and arrested him on the charges of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, malicious injury to personal property and malicious injury to real property.

While he was being booked into jail, deputies said a small bag of a green, plant-like material fell to his feet. He was also cited with simple possession of marijuana.
