LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police have arrested a 79-year-old man after they say he attacked his neighbor for "staring at him."
According to an arrest report, the alleged victim was pulling out of his driveway in the 9800 block of Fairmount Road, just west of Old Bardstown Road, when James W. Handy threw coffee on him through his open car window.
The victim quickly stopped his car and got out, "to ask what the problem was." Police say Handy quickly replied by smashing the coffee mug against the man's head. Handy then allegedly cut up the victim's arm with the broken handle.
When police asked Handy why he did it, he allegedly told them that, "he owed it to him" and that the victim "was staring at him."
Police say Handy added that he would do it again, too, if the victim "looked at him."
Handy was arrested and charged with second-degree assault.
