SALISBURY, Md.- A Salisbury man is behind bars following accusations that he threw full cans of beer at his mother and then slammed a door on her hand, resulting in an injury requiring medical treatment.  

Salisbury police said that shortly after 10 p.m. Sunday, officers were called to a home on the 100 block of Washington Street to investigate a report of an assault with a knife.

Police said the investigation revealed that 37-year-old Kevin Lamont White and his mother were in an argument when White threw two full cans of beer at his mother, striking her in the chest.
