So Much For The Carefree Golden Years ...
In Readington Township, New Jersey, a 59-year-old man actually went to his 88-year-old mom's senior center residence - apparently drunk - and got into it with her. So what did she do? She put the hurt on him! Per the Hunterdon County Democrat:
An incident between a mother and her son brought police to the Mirota Senior Residence on Van Horn Road on Friday. Police were called around 8:30 a.m.; they gave the following account of the incident.
An 88-year-old woman and her 59-year-old son got into an argument and then the mother assaulted the son, causing visible injuries to his face. The son appeared to be intoxicated and was being loud and disturbing other residents at the complex.
The son was arrested for harassment and disorderly conduct and was released after being detained for several hours.
The mother was also arrested and charged with simple assault. She was released after being served with a summons.
Both were offered various forms of assistance provided by the county, but they both declined.Who needs assistance? Everything is totally under control ...
