The incident took place on Saturday when 19-year-old William Mumby began arguing with his mother over dirty dishes that were left in the sink. Allegedly, the argument became physical in nature and Mumby placed his mother in a headlock.
Mumby told police later that he was thinking about rendering her unconscious through his acts, but he then decided that he wasn’t going to.
Police took Mumby in and booked him at the Brevard County Jail on a felony charge of domestic battery by strangulation. He is now being held on $5,000 bail.
At this time, an investigation into the incident continues to take place.
