This could be one for the man-bites-dog file.
A 15-year-old boy complained to investigators that he woke up on — a school day — to loud music and his mom and stepdad drunk.
He said he wanted to rest a while longer “because he was tired from his mother blasting music all night,” according to recently released Martin County Sheriff’s Office records.
He said he got in the shower 15 minutes later and his mom and stepfather began banging on the door and yelling, “Get the (sexual intercourse) out of the shower.”
Traditionally, parents model responsible behavior for their children to better prepare them for adulthood.
The teen boy said he asked his mom to leave him alone, and she began saying “mean things” and name calling.
He said he bent over to put on his shoes, and that his mom started punching him. He said he eventually held her against the wall in an effort to thwart the attacks.
Mickel, who smelled of booze and appeared under the influence of an “unknown substance,” said her son was back talking and wanted his phone. She slurred her speech and kept nodding off.
Mickel gave investigators an inconsistent story and kept altering the events.
A neighbor said the son was not the aggressor.
Deputies gave the son a ride to school and gave the mom a ride to jail.
Mickel, of the 2400 block of Northwest Holiday Court in Stuart, was arrested on a domestic battery charge.
