Michael Gordon Jail Booking

Palm Beach, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Michael Gordon, a 43-year-old Lake Worth man was jailed Wednesday after he allegedly beat his 74-year-old mother after she refused to give him drug money.

According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, an investigation was launched after a social services investigator called deputies and reported that an elderly woman had been abused.

Investigators say Gordon and his mother were at a friend's house Saturday when he asked his mother for money to buy drugs.

When she said no, Gorden reportedly punched her to the ground. A couple inside the home stated that they were upstairs when they heard a loud noise. When they ran downstairs to check on the noise, they found Gordan dragging his mother across the floor as she screamed.

When the couple placed the woman on a couch, she told them that Gordon had punched her in the head. Doctors later confirmed that the woman suffered a bump to the back of the head and a broken pelvis from the attack.

When deputies asked the woman about her son, she stated that "he was her only son, and he was a "good boy" that needed rehab for his drug issues." She then refused to let police photograph her injuries.

Gordon was booked into the Palm County Jail and charged with aggravated battery on an elderly person over 65 years of age or older. He is currently being held without bail.
