Carpenter was treated for his injuries at St. Mary's Hospital and then taken to the Marion County Jail in connection with the earlier domestic battery case where he allegedly punched both his mother and father, George and Carolyn Carpenter, at their home. He allegedly struck his father first and then his mother when she tried to break up the altercation. She was also knocked to the ground.
Jason allegedly ripped the phone away from his mother when she attempted to call police. Deputies say Jason eventually left on foot when she was finally able to seek help. Both George and Carolyn Carpenter declined hospital treatment for their injuries.
