A 24-year-old Kingston man was arrested and charged after a violent altercation between him and his mother required police response.
On Thursday, Sept. 20, 2018, the man returned home from school, allegedly intoxicated, according to a press release from Kingston Police. When his mother confronted him, the son began throwing items around the house, and a physical altercation ensued between the mother and son.

He continued to fight as additional officers responded, and had to be physically forced into the cruiser, police said.
The man was arrested and is charged with assault causing bodily hard, and assaulting police with the intent to resist arrest.
