HAMMOND, La.- Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Deputies arrested 32-year-old Dominick Joseph Richard, of Gretna, La., for beating his elderly father in November.  

Investigators say Richard beat his father because he wouldn't give him money to purchase narcotics.

Richard hit his father in the head, knocking him unconscious, according to investigators. Officials say Richard tried to hit his father again when he regained consciousness. Investigators say the father grabbed a gun and shot Richard in self defense.

Richard was taken to the hospital where he was treated and released. He is charged with Second Degree Battery.
