Father and son get into fight with NM medical marijuana owners
Police say a 42-year-old father and his 15-year-old son are facing charges after they both got into a violent altercation with the owners of an Albuquerque pot facility.
ABC affiliate KOAT-TV reports that police say the fight last week began after Raul Garay was denied medical marijuana and threatened the owner of Zia Health and Wellness with an airsoft gun, which fires plastic BB's, but can look very realistic.
The owner told police that Garay also bit him and the owner's son, a dispensary employee.
Police say Garay's son then struck the owner of a pot dispensary in the back with a golf club during a melee in the parking lot.
The elder Garay was charged with aggravated assault and child abuse. The son was charged with two counts of aggravated battery.
