DEFUNIAK SPRINGS — A 58-year-old man was arrested on a felony battery charge after police say he harassed his 79-year-old mother after coming home drunk.

The woman told police on June 4 that her son and one of his friends had come home drunk late that night, according to an arrest report form the Walton County Sheriff’s Office. After the friend left, her son came into her room and began harassing her.

Police say the man shut off the lights in her bedroom, poured beer on her head, spit on her, called her a “two bit whore,” turned over her side tables and struck her bedroom door several times.

In an interview with police, the man reportedly admitted to pouring beer on his mother’s head, saying he was just being “stupid.” He denied spitting on his mother.

The man was charged with battery on a person 65 years of age or older.
