Quade Galen Washington (mug shot SCSO)

A twenty four year-old man from Galena has been charged with domestic assault after he allegedly beat his mother and father up on Christmas day.

According to the probable cause statement, the father of Quade Galen Washington was transported to a hospital with a possible broken hip following the alleged assault.  His mother, who refused to be transported, had a swollen hand and neck.

Court documents say Washington, who was placed in the Stone County MOJO program in July of 2011 after he pleaded guilty to charges of unlawful use of drug paraphernalia, refused a breathalyzer test.  He is also serving five years probation in Christian County after pleading guilty to stealing and drug charges there in 2009.

He is being held on $50,000 bond.
