CUSHING, TX (KTRE) - Nacogdoches County Sheriff's deputies arrested a 17-year-old man Sunday night after he allegedly went on a rampage at a relative's house in Cushing. The man is accused of throwing a brick at his mother, breaking numerous items in the home, and tattooing his younger sibling.
Jonathan Mougeottte, of Cushing, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail, on a second-degree aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge, a third-degree felony injury to a child charge, and a class B misdemeanor criminal mischief charge. Collectively, his bail has been set at $26,500.
According to the incident report, NCSO deputies were dispatched to a house in the 200 block of 4th Street in Cushing at approximately 6:45 p.m. Dispatch told them that the suspect was breaking items inside the home.
According to the arrest affidavit, Mougeotte got angry when his mother attempted to take his cell phone away because he was using it to photograph his genital area. At that point, Mougeotte allegedly went outside and threatened to break out the windows of his mother's vehicle with a brick.
When Mougeotte's mother yelled at him to stop, the young man turned and threw the brick at her, barely missing her, according to the affidavit.
The NCSO deputies on scene also learned that Mougeotte had allegedly tattooed his 14-year-old brother with homemade items several days before the alleged brick throwing incident. Mougeotte allegedly used a razor blade and ink from a pen to do it, and the wounds "were deep enough to tear the tissue and penetrate the ink into the skin, causing injury."
Mougeotte was arrested at the scene and transported to the Nacogdoches County Jail without any further incident.
