MISSOULA, Montana — A 38-year-old Missoula man is charged with pulling his disabled uncle out of his wheelchair and beating and kicking him during an argument.

Jeremy Christopher Clyde made an initial appearance in Justice Court on Thursday on charge of abuse of a person with a developmental disability.

Prosecutors say a social worker reported that a 52-year-old client showed signs of abuse. She said the man is physically and mentally disabled and that Clyde his is primary caregiver.

Charging documents say the man had injuries to his face, mouth and arm as well as some loose teeth and a fractured tooth.

Justice of the Peace Karen Orzech set Clyde's bond at $10,000 and said he couldn't live with his uncle. Clyde is scheduled to enter a plea on Nov. 20.
