A Charleston man is accused of breaking a metal mop stick over his brother’s head creating a hole near his temple.

Kristin Simmons, 24, of Sequoia Street was charged with second-degree assault and battery.

Early this morning, Simmons and his brother were arguing and wrestling when Simmons used the stick to hit his brother on the head, police said.

When police arrived at the apartment on Sequoia Street, there was a very large amount of blood on the living room floor, the report stated. Simmons’ brother was having trouble telling police what happened and then passed out in front of officers, according to the report.

He then woke up confused, jumped up, ran out the door and laid down in the parking lot, the report stated.

Simmons’ brother was transported to Medical University Hospital where a doctor later told police that the stick did not penetrate the skull.
