A Baxter County man has been arrested for allegedly hitting his mother. Nineteen-year-old Casey Dillan Lawson is facing a felony charge after the incident early Saturday morning.

According to the incident report from the Baxter County Sheriff’s Office, Lawson’s mother told deputies she asked her son to calm down and go to bed but he didn’t respond. The woman says she grabbed her son’s shirt, and that’s the last thing she remembers. She was treated at Baxter Regional Medical Center and then transferred to a Springfield hospital.

Another person in the house told deputies he heard a commotion and found the woman unconscious on the floor.

Lawson was located and arrested later Saturday morning. He is charged with battery in the second degree. His bond is set at $15,000.
