Video shows a Detroit landscaper beating his elderly employer after alleging there was a discrepancy in pay. Keith Demetrious Taylor, 32 was charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder.
Per Detroit News:
A preliminary report by Oakland County sheriff’s deputies, Taylor got into an argument Oct. 5 with his 75-year-old employer outside a Rochester Hills business on Star Batt Drive, where the two men were cutting the lawn. Taylor asked to be paid before he left the site, then became agitated about the amount of the check and claimed he had been underpaid, deputies said. Taylor, who is 6-foot, 3-inches tall, began yelling profanities and kicked the older man, who is 5-foot, 8-inches tall, in the mid-section and then in the head, authorities allege.
Prior to this latest incident, Taylor reportedly has outstanding warrants on charges of assault to do great bodily harm less than murder and aggravated assault out in Detroit. He also has drug and assault convictions in the state of Arizona.
