CRESTVIEW — A 13-year-old Crestview boy has been charged with felony domestic battery by strangulation for allegedly choking his mom.

Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office deputies were called to the home on July 3 for a family disturbance.

When they arrived, they found the victim with injuries to her throat.

She told them that her son hit her, pushed her to the ground and put his hands around her throat. He then squeezed it to the point where she almost blacked out, she said.

The boy told deputies that he had, in fact, strangled his mom against her will.

The arrest report didn't say why the boy allegedly choked his mother.
