A Pennsylvania mother was arrested after choking her 11-year-old son for trying to stop her from putting his two-year-old sister outside in the snow.
Heather Michael Hall told police that she no longer wants her two-year-old daughter and choked her son when he tried to stop her from putting the toddler outside in the snow.
Hall has been charged with child endangerment, assault, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and aggravated assault on a police officer after attacking and spitting on officers. She is being held in York County Prison on $35,000 bail, the York Dispatch reports.
According to police, Hall’s son was tackled and choked by his mother after attempting to stop her from putting his sister in the show. She reportedly held her son by the throat, which left a three-inch-long mark on his neck.
It was 15 degrees outside when the incident occurred; six inches of snow lay on the ground.
Police say Hall appeared to be intoxicated when they arrived at her home in York on February 14.
Officer Michael Jordan of the West Manchester Township Police Department said that when he arrived, he looked through the glass door and spotted Hall sleeping on the couch with her two-year-old “pinned” between her mother and the back of the couch.
When Hall woke up, she reportedly yelled at the officer, “What the f*** are you doing in my house, Jordan?” She ordered her son not to speak to the police as she continued to scream at the officers.
Hall’s boyfriend, Mark Gibbs, the father of the two-year-old, arrived at Hall’s apartment, picked a bottle of Brandy up off the floor and told officers, “She was drinking again.”
According to Hall’s arrest affidavit, Hall told police several times while crying, “I don’t want her anymore,” referring to her toddler.
Police say Hall resisted arrest and spat on officers as they put her in the back of a police cruiser.
They brought the erratic mother to a hospital after she complained about pain. She reportedly spat on hospital staff, as well, and yelled racial slurs at a black security officer at the medical center.
