Posted: Updated:

 State Troopers say an argument between a father and son turned violent in Isabella County on Saturday.

 

 

They say a father hit his 27-year-old son from Coleman in the head with a hammer at a home in Wise Township.

The father was arrested and faces five felonies, including assault with intent to murder.

He is being held on $100,000 bond and expected to be arraigned Monday.

The victim was taken to a Mount Pleasant hospital, then transferred to Saginaw for his injuries.

Police do believe alcohol played a role in the incident.
