FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Authorities in Cumberland County are accusing a Fayetteville man of beating his handicapped grandfather after an argument over $5.

The sheriff’s office says 18-year-old Michael Allen Jackson was angered when his grandfather refused to give him the money.

Authorities say 63-year-old Glenn Maynor was punched in the face and chest several times. He was knocked down and hit his head on a concrete floor.

According to the sheriff’s office, Maynor was left bleeding from his left eye, nose and mouth and had a severely swollen left eye. He was transported to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center for treatment.

The incident occurred Friday.

Jackson is in the Cumberland County jail under $100,000 bond. He made his first court appearance Monday, and jail records didn’t show whether he has an attorney.
