Matthew Beider's Jail Booking Report
Port St. Lucie, Fla. (The Weekly Vice) - Matthew Beider, a 23-year-old Port St. Lucie man who assaulted his mother with a 3-foot-long sword earlier this month has been arrested again.
He was jailed Thursday after allegedly using a Taser on his mother and then stomping on her as she lay on the floor.
According to Port St. Lucie Police, Beider wrestled his mother's personal Taser away from her and then shocked her with it. Then, as she lay on the floor reeling from the jolt, he reportedly kicked her in the head, arms, legs and abdomen.
The victim told police she tried to use the Taser to protect herself when her son "came at her in an aggressive manner," according to the arrest report. It was then Beider reportedly grabbed the Taser and dropped his mother to the ground with it.
Beider was arrested earlier this month after police say he pulled out a 3-foot-long sword and threatened his mother with it. The woman called 911 saying "I am in trouble, come quickly!" The phone was disconnected, however, when Beider cut power to the house from the home's breaker box.
Beider now faces aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, witness tampering, obstruction of justice and aggravated battery/domestic violence with priors. He is being held without bail on two of the charges.
