LYNN, AR (KAIT) -  A man was arrested Saturday, March 19, after Lawrence County deputies say he shoved an elderly person down and broke their hip.

Deputies were called to a home in Lynn about an irate male.  When they arrived the elderly resident, who was not identified by name or gender, said that 27-year-old Brent Anthony Kingcade had pushed them down and broken their hip.

The victim said they were afraid of Kingcade and asked that he be removed.
