CARROLLTON (KRLD) — Carrollton Police have arrested a 25-year-old man who allegedly attacked his brother and assaulted his grandmother with a socket wrench.

Police responded to a family violence call around 2:20 a.m. Friday in the 2400 block of Misty Lane.

Officers at the scene were told that Adam Dickerson came home drunk and got into a fight with his brother. His grandmother was in the room moving shoes when the suspect became even more violent.

“The suspect grabbed a socket wrench and threw it as his grandmother’s face,” said Nicole Rodriquez with Carrollton Police.

This created a four-inch gash on her cheek, requiring treatment at a local hospital.

Dickerson was arrested on two separate family violence assault charges. One included assault with a deadly weapon.
