Police: Man beaten with hoverboard in East Manchester Twp.
An East Manchester Township man is accused of assaulting his mother's boyfriend with a hoverboard, sending him to York Hospital, according to police.
Northeastern Regional Police say Khire Raeqwon Jamerson was having a "heated" verbal confrontation with his brother outside the home about 10:30 p.m. Sunday, March 11, when his mother's boyfriend and his mother tried to split them up.
Jamerson's mother grabbed his brother, and his mother's boyfriend, the victim, grabbed Jamerson, and Jamerson then started fighting him, according to police. During the fight, Jamerson hit the victim in the head with a hoverboard, knocking him unconscious, charging documents allege.
Police would later find Jamerson with a hoverboard that had traces of blood on it, officials said.
Jamerson, 22, of the 100 block of Spring Meadows Road, is charged with aggravated assault, simple assault and making terroristic threats.
Found victim: Police were sent to Jamerson's home late Sunday night for a report of a physical fight. When they arrived, they found the victim lying on the floor inside the home with a head injury, and he was bleeding badly from his right hand, according to officials.
While police were speaking to the victim, Jamerson called his mother, who put him on speaker phone, police said.
"Jamerson threatened to come back and 'smoke' everyone," Officer David Cavanaugh wrote in charging documents. "Smoke" is slang for shooting a gun, according to Cavanaugh.
When Cavanaugh tried talking to him, Jamerson hung up, police said.
Finding Jamerson: Police searched the area of Covington Drive and Fenwick Drive and found Jamerson with his girlfriend, officials said.
Jamerson told police that he was arguing with his brother outside the house when the victim grabbed him from behind by the neck, court documents state. Police say Jamerson told officials that he then left.
He did not say anything about hitting the victim with the hoverboard, charging documents state.
The officer noticed that Jamerson had blood on his shirt that did not appear to be his own because he did not have any injuries or open wounds, officials said. Police say Jamerson was then placed under arrest.
Jamerson was carrying a hoverboard when police found him, and there were traces of blood on it, documents state.
Additionally, Jamerson was wanted on three warrants at the time of his arrest.
Jamerson was arraigned on the charges at the county's central booking unit Monday, March 12, and he was sent to York County Prison in lieu of $105,000 bail.
He does not have an attorney listed.
His preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 27 at District Judge Robert Eckenrode's office.
