Man Punches Mother In Face While Decorating Christmas Tree Because His Name Wasn’t On Ornament
The Michigan man saw his brother’s name on an ornament, but not his as he and his father were decorating the tree, and that really bothered him.
Cops responded to a home in Casco Township late Friday night after a 911 call was placed from the residence. While nobody was on the line, a dispatcher heard “yelling and screaming in the background and a woman screaming ‘You are hurting me,’” deputies reported.
An investigation by the Allegan County Sheriff’s Office determined that Lewis Atwood, 33, slugged his mother Sandra, 58, in the face “four or five times” while trimming the Christmas tree with his girlfriend and brother. Police allege that the accused assailant was drunk and became incensed after discovering that only his younger sibling’s name appeared on an ornament.
