Will the Judge Lower the Hammer?by Jackson on 03/01/11
A 60-year-old Stock Island woman is in jail after she hit her 18-year-old son with a hammer in an argument over a sandwich. The son said he and his mother had been arguing over a sandwich. Witnesses said the son had been rude and belligerent to his mother when she asked him not to eat his sandwich in the living room. When he refused to eat elsewhere, she threatened to break his TV and kick him out of the house. She then picked up a hammer and hit him on his left arm. She also hit him with her fists on the head and bit him on his wrist.
