ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A 60 year old Albany man is convicted of attacking his landlord's employee with a tennis racket when he was given an eviction notice.

A Dougherty County Jury found Johnny Lowery guilty of aggravated assault following his two day trial.

Prosecutors say June 7th, 2012 Lowery struck 71 year old Haywood Paul several times with a tennis racket, causing him to fall off the porch of the apartments on Owens Avenue.

Paul was hospitalized with head and arm injuries.

Paul testified that Lowery was being evicted for refusing to remove dozens of tires he was storing around the apartment.

Lowery is to be sentenced next week.
