An Atlanta woman faces battery charges after police say she assaulted a fellow nursing home resident with a telephone.
Police arrested 94-year-old Theodora Garreau on Sunday at Westminster Commons after receiving reports that she had thrown a telephone at another woman. It was unclear why.
Attorney Robert Kaiden says his client, who weighs 80 pounds and has arthritis, did not hurt the other resident.
Atlanta police did not immediately return phone calls Friday morning.
