BRIDGEVILLE, Del. (AP) — Police in Delaware say a 21-year-old man struck his teen brother with a car during a family dispute.

The News Journal cites a release from Delaware State Police that says Jaquan A. James' 18-year-old brother and their mother got into an argument Monday, during which the mother retrieved a bat and machete, thinking the teen had a gun. Police say the teen began to walk away from the home when James backed out of the driveway, hitting his brother.

The teen was airlifted to a hospital in critical condition.

James was charged with felony assault and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony. He was released on a $40,000 bond. It's unclear whether he has a lawyer.
