A Joliet man is accused of gouging his uncle's eyes out during a fight over a remote control.

Police were called to a home on New Year's Eve and found a 62-year-old man with blood streaming from his eyes. Authorities say the man's eyeballs were protruding from his eye sockets. He told police deputies his nephew tried to pry his eyes out with his thumbs.

Exulam Holman, 32, is charged with aggravated domestic battery. He is being held on a $1 million bond.
