Pinehurst, N.C. — A Moore County attorney is facing serious charges after he was accused of attacking a teenager last week.
Arthur Blue of Pinehurst is charged with assault with a deadly weapon and communicating threats.
Court documents show the victim of the attack was a 16-year-old boy. The teen claims Blue pulled him from a car Friday, then kicked him and beat him with a club. Court documents said Blue also slammed the teen’s head onto the ground.
According to an arrest warrant, Blue told the teen “I want to kill you. I want you to die.”
Southern Pines police have not said what led to the alleged attack.
The teen’s father said he could not comment on the case and Blue did not return requests for comment Wednesday night.
