GREENVILLE, N.C. -

A Tarboro man is behind bars, accused of smashing a beer bottle over a man's head and punching him in the face.

23-year-old Kendrick Lemon Draughn was arrested and charged with Assault with a deadly weapon with intent to inflict serious injury.

Deputies say they responded to a residence on Wrench Circle, where Draughn's mother reported her son had found 51-year-old Alton Taylor with her and became angry about it.

Draughn then, allegedly, hit Taylor over the head with a beer bottle and punched him in the face. Taylor was treated for minor injuries at Vidant Medical Center.

Draughn was placed in the Pitt County Detention Center under a $25,000 bond.
