A man suffered "extensive burn injuries" to his upper body Friday after a man living in his home tossed hot grease onto him as he slept.

Bulloch County Sheriff's deputies arrested Andra Harrison, 34, Plantation Mobile Home Park, on charges of aggravated assault, said Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson.

Harrison apparently became angry at comments by and a situation involving Abram Cone, 41, also of Plantation Mobile Home Park, he said.

"The assault allegedly stemmed from Harrison's belief that comments directed towards him by Cone were inappropriate," he said. "Harrison then observed Cone asleep, heated grease in the kitchen... and poured it on Cone while he slept on the living room couch."

When deputies arrived at the U.S. 80 East mobile home park, they found Cone with "extensive burn injuries to his upper torso." Bulloch County EMS transported Cone to East Georgia Regional Medical center, and he was later transported to a burn center in Augusta for further treatment.

Harrison is being held without bond in the Bulloch County Jail, he said.
