Frankfort man charged after allegedly shooting son’s car
A 74-year-old Frankfort man accused of shooting his son’s car after they argued Friday was charged with domestic battery and aggravated discharge of a firearm, police said.
Donald R. Graves, of 21181 Deerpath Road, and the victim had been arguing before 10 a.m. inside Graves’ house, according to Frankfort Deputy Police Chief Kevin Keegan.
“Words were exchanged, clothing was thrown and Graves’ son gathered his belongings and got into his car,” Keegan said. “As he was driving away he saw his father come out onto the porch and fire a round from a handgun.”
One bullet struck the rear door on the driver’s side, Keegan said.
Police arrived and surrounded the house before Graves came out and surrendered, Keegan said.
Police seized a gun found in Graves’ house, and Graves had a valid firearm owner’s identification card, Keegan said.
Graves was released from the Will County jail Saturday afternoon after posting $15,000 bond, county records show.
