Police say a Mississippi man turned violent during an argument with his adult son and cut him with a machete.

A Jasper County man is facing a felony charge after an argument with his adult son turned violent, officials said.

Reginald Walstein Odom Jr., 55, faces felony domestic assault charges, the Laurel Leader-Call newspaper reports.

Odom was arrested earlier in September and released on bond. The newspaper reported that Jasper County Sheriff Randy Johnson said Odom’s charges stemmed from “cutting his 22-year-old son with a machete during an argument.”
