DELBARTON — State police say a Mingo County man has been charged with shooting his 12-year-old son in the leg.

State police spokesman Sgt. Michael Baylous says 37-year-old Acie S. Copley of Delbarton was charged in Mingo County Magistrate Court with child neglect resulting in injury and wanton endangerment.

Baylous says a trooper from the Williamson detachment responded to a complaint of a physical altercation on Wednesday.

The boy was treated at Appalachian Regional Hospital in Williamson and released.

Copley was held without bond Thursday at the Southwestern Regional Jail in Holden. Jail records didn’t indicate whether he has an attorney.
