ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Police say a 42-year-old father and his 15-year-old son are facing charges after the pair got into a violent altercation with the owners of an Albuquerque medical marijuana dispensary.

KOAT-TV reports that police say the fight last week began after Raul Garay was denied medical marijuana and threatened the owner of Zia Health and Wellness with an airsoft gun.

The owner told police that Garay also bit him and the owner's son, a dispensary employee.

Police say Garay's son then struck the owner of a marijuana dispensary in the back with a golf club during a melee in the parking lot.

The elder Garay was charged with aggravated assault and child abuse. The son was charged with two counts of aggravated battery.

It was unclear if either had attorneys.
