Man Punches His Mom Over a Christmas Ornament

Lewis AtwoodBy Daphne R

Over the weekend a Michigan man was arrested for allegedly punching his mother repeatedly in the face because she failed to put a Christmas ornament with his name on it on the tree.

The Allegan County Sherriff’s Office responded to a call it received early Saturday morning around 2 am after being dispatched by a 911 operator who received a call in which they could hear a woman screaming, “You are hurting me!”

Once deputies arrived, they discovered that Lewis Atwood, 33, had been drinking while decorating the Christmas tree with his mother, brother and girlfriend. When Atwood noticed that there was no ornament bearing his name on the tree. His  mother had put up an ornament on the tree with his brother’s name on it.

In the police report, there was a statement that Atwood had punched his 58 year old mother in the face four or five times. His mother suffered a blοody nose, swollen eye and swollen lip. Atwood had also sustained injuries to his knuckles and hands during the altercation.

Atwood has been charged with domestic violence, and apparently he has a history of domestic violence as this appears to be his third offense. Records show that he was also charged with domestic violence in 2002 and 2006.

Nothing is quite as strong, or in this case forgiving, as a mother’s love. The mother has responded by saying that her son would not have attacked her had he not been drinking. Leave it to a mother to stick by her son.

The Sherriff’s department says they get calls similar to this often around the holidays when family stress combined with drinking escalate into violence and fighting.

    Ladys ladys come on he is 33 years old and no one knows for sure what their drunk intoxicated grown child is going to do in their house.Those of u ladys who said never wait until u 58years old and your grown adult child is drunk or high my point is don’t say NEVER.Drugs and alcohol have shamed many parents who said never.

    Should have been a Black mother for we truly believe in the old saying, “we brought you into this world and we will take you out.” When I managed to get up, I would have blown his brains out and asked God’s forgiveness, then dialed 911!
