Abuse An Elder Go To Jail !

A St.Charles man is back in jail on suspicion of swinging a cabinet door toward his grandfather.

William C. Shannon, 18, was charged today in St. Charles County Circuit Court with third-degree elder abuse, a misdemeanor.

Police say Shannon attempted to strike his 65-year-old grandfather with a kitchen cabinet door late Monday night at their home in the 3400 block of Wilshire Avenue in St. Charles.

The charge is a violation of Shannon's five-year probation stemming from a guilty plea in September to a felony charge of elder abuse. In March, Shannon struck his grandfather on the arm with a metal pipe because he wouldn't give him money to buy a cell phone.

Shannon's probation was suspended today, and he was being held at the St. Charles County Jail on a $10,000 cash only bail.
