A man got arrested after choking his own mother in a car over a dispute on the lyrics of Justine Bieber song.
A 21-year old man from Michigan was arrested after being accused of choking his 41-year old mother while they were travelling in her car along with his 70 year-old grandmother and a 17-year old girl.
Officers were summoned to a highway in Acme Township after receiving reports that two people were fighting inside a white car. When the deputy arrived, they saw a 21-year-old man from Traverse City and his mother, 41, from Wyoming, Michigan.
According to reports, the family was travelling when a Justin Bieber song came up on the radio. The 21-year old man said something about the lyrics which his mother didn’t like.
The two had a verbal argument, and then his mother pulled over and climbed at the back seat of her car to warn her son to be more disrespectful in front of his grandmother, who was with them at the time of the incident.
The verbal argument turned physical when the 21-year old choked his mother and attempted to get away.
The man was arrested on suspicion of domestic assault and booked at Grand Traverse County Jail. According to authorities, this incident isn’t the man’s first domestic assault arrest. He was previously convicted of domestic assault in 2014.
With lyrics like: “Chillin’ by the fire while we eatin’ fondue, I don’t know about me but I know about you” the conversation no doubt had a philosophical bent.
Justin Bieber, the singer whose lyrics started the altercation, was recently let off the hook for an assault case, as reported by TMZ. Bieber was accused of head-butting a man at a pre-Grammy party who filmed him play fighting with a friend.
