South Carolina Man, 32, Beat Stepfather For Spilling His Cup Of Kool-Aid, Cops Report

An “irate” South Carolina man repeatedly punched his stepfather in the head after the older man spilled his stepson’s cup of Kool-Aid, police charge.

Armon Magellan Jones, 32, is facing an assault count for allegedly pummeling 57-year-old John Lesley during a confrontation late Saturday in their home in Rock Hill, a city 25 miles south of Charlotte.

According to a Rock Hill Police Department report, Lesley told an officer that he and Jones “began arguing over a cup of Kool-Aid that Lesley had knocked over.” The dispute, cops noted, “quickly escalated and Jones became irate.”

Lesley told police that Jones punched him several times in the head. The assault, cops reported, caused “visible injury to Lesley.”

Jones, seen at left, fled on foot following the attack, but was arrested two hours later when he returned to the residence (officers found him hiding behind the door in his bedroom). He was charged with misdemeanor assault and battery.
