Police: 'Humpty Dumpty' comment ends up with son beating up mother

Police_event_generic_ledeA 48-year-old Florida man is accused of beating up his 68-year-old mother after she reportedly called a boy "Humpty Dumpty" after he fell and hit his head.

The man, from the Southwest Florida city of Palmetto, was charged with batter on his mother, according to bradenton.com.

Thomas Barbee on Sunday pushed his mother down a hallway, up against a wall and then down to the ground into a doorway, according to police.

The woman told police her son accused her of hitting his girlfriend’s son and yelling at him.

Barbee was released from the Manatee County jail on Tuesday on a $1,500 bond.
