LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Angelina County Sheriff's deputies arrested a 33-year-old Pollok man Tuesday after he allegedly got into an argument with his mother over a phone and struck her on both arms with a board before he pushed her and punched her in the face and head.

Clayton Wesley Gilmore is still being held in the Angelina County jail on a second-degree felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and a Class B misdemeanor charge of motion to revoke probation for driving while license invalid. No bail has been set at this time.

According to the arrest affidavit, the incident happened on Aug. 14, 2013. An ACSO deputy was dispatched to a residence in the 100 block of Kay Drive in Angelina County in reference to a disturbance.

When the deputy arrived on the scene, the 55-year-old victim told him that her son and his girlfriend had been arguing for the past few days. Gilmore came into her bedroom and asked for her cell phone.

The woman told the deputy that after she told her son no, Gilmore took the phone from her. The mother got up and took the phone back, and at that point, Gilmore allegedly grabbed a board from the floor of his room and started hitting her in her upper arms.

The woman told the deputy that Gilmore then pushed her into the hall way of the residence. Then he allegedly punched her in face and the right side of her head. In addition, the woman said her son told her he was going to kill her as he was hitting her.

According to the arrest affidavit, Gilmore's mother didn't want to file charges against her son.
