Northern Arizona Man Hits Dad's Girlfriend in Head With Ax Because She Was Yelling at Him
It's hard for any kid to warm up to a parent's love interest when that person isn't the child's mother or father. The resentment tends to fade by the time you're 42 years old, though. Unless you're name is Guy Neal O'Connor, Jr.
O'Connor was arrested over the weekend after police say he hit his father's girlfriend in the head with an axe.
According to the Mohave County Sheriff's Office, officers got a call about a domestic violence incident in the 14800 block of North Eureka Drive in Dolan Springs around 8 p.m. Saturday.
While en route to the scene, responding officers were told the suspect had hit a female victim in the head with an ax.
When police got to the scene, they found O'Connor, who was happy to explain the situation.
O'Connor told deputies his dad's girlfriend was "yelling at him and he picked up an ax and hit her in the head."
Perhaps a stern "you're not the boss of me" would have sufficed.
O'Connor was arrested immediately and his father's girlfriend was taken to the hospital.
O'Connor's been charged with one felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
No word on the condition of the victim.
