Charges for rude awakening of teen
Placeholder Image

A mother and her boyfriend have been bound on domestic assault charges after they dragged her slumbering teen son out of bed after he refused to get up.
The mother, Felicia Basham, and her boyfriend, Micki Allen Thomas, have both been bound to the grand jury on the charge of domestic assault.
Their charges come after the boy’s father reported to law enforcement that his teen son had suffered injuries while staying with his mother and her boyfriend. The injuries, he maintained, came when his mother walked into his room and told him to get up.
“He was on the top bed of his bunkbed and she attempted to pull him by his foot and drag him off the bed,” the boy’s father maintained. “When she was unable to get him off the bed, Micki walked into the bedroom and dragged him off the bed, causing him to hit the right side of his ribs and fall to the floor.”
The victim said he was choked by his mother’s boyfriend while he was on the floor. He also said that once he tried to get back into bed, his mother scratched him on his back and chest. Lawmen reportedly took pictures of the injuries.
