KERSHAW COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

A 48-year-old Kershaw County man was arrested and charged with second degree assault and battery after investigators say he beat his 12-year-old son.

Kershaw County Sheriff's deputies say Antonio Green got into an argument with his son about a missing pair of keys.

Green, who was reportedly drunk during the incident, then beat the child with his fists and a flashlight.

The boy, according to deputies, fled the scene to a neighbor's house where 911 was called. Kershaw County EMS also treated the child and took him to KershawHealth.

Deputies arrived at Green's Bunker Hill Road residence a short time later and immediately took him into custody. His bond was set at $20,000 and he remains at the Kershaw County Detention Center.

The child, meanwhile, was removed from the home and is staying with relatives.

Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews says Green has an extensive criminal record with arrests for assault and battery, disorderly conduct, DUI, DUS, criminal domestic violence, criminal domestic violence high and aggravated, and open container.
