Man Accused Of Beating His Mom With A Spatula After Huffing Paint

Police found Glenn Allen Casdorph holding a large steel bar, with his face covered with silver paint.

The evidence of a West Virginia man's crime was written all over his face last week after police say he huffed paint and then beat his mom with a spatula.

Glenn Allen Casdorph, 30, was found by police sitting on a bench in his front yard, with his face covered in silver spray paint. He was holding a large steel bar at the time, according to local news station WCHS/WVAH.

When St. Albans Police went inside the home, they found Casdorph's mother, Robin Casdorph, who had been beaten. Her shirt was covered in blood and her head had been wrapped in gauze.

Glenn Allen Casdorph was arrested Thursday evening and has been charged with malicious wounding in the incident, according to The Mercury News.

Casdorph is a well-known individual to police and has had previous run-ins with law enforcement after huffing paint. In 2015, Casdorph was reportedly charged with battering a cop after he was discovered in a grassy field with gold spray paint around his mouth and nose smelling of "fresh paint."

After being taken into custody, he allegedly had threatened to kill the arresting officer once he was released from jail and attempted to kick him while being escorted to the car, according to a Magistrate Court criminal complaint posted online at the time by The Smoking Gun.

The complaint lists his alias as "Casdorph The Destroyer."

In his latest incident, Casdorph, listed as 6'4", is being held at the South Central Regional Jail on a $10,000 or 10 percent cash bond.
