(Meredith) — A West Virginia man is facing criminal charges after police said he huffed spray paint and then beat his mother with a spatula.

Police in St. Albans arrested 30-year-old Allen Casdorph while responding to a report of a domestic incident Thursday night, WCHS-TV  reported, citing a criminal complaint.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found Casdorph in the front yard with a large amount of silver paint on his face and a large steel bar in his hands.

Police said his mother was inside the home with a head wound wrapped with gauze. There was also a large amount of blood on her shirt and the back of her neck, according to the report.

Casdorph was taken to the South Central Regional Jail. He is facing a malicious wounding charge. 

Online jail records don't indicate whether he has an attorney.
