ALBANY, Ore. -- Albany police say they discovered three pounds of marijuana after responding to an altercation in which a father stabbed his adult son in the forearm.

The Albany Democrat Herald reports 58-year-old Alexander Robertson was charged with drug crimes as well as assault, unlawful use of a weapon and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Meanwhile, his son -- 20-year-old Lee Thomas Cates -- faces a variety of marijuana-related charges.

Detectives say the wound on Cates' left arm was about an inch in diameter and three inches deep.

His arm was in a sling at Wednesday's arraignment.

Both men are due back in court next month.
