The man "began a verbal onslaught of racial slurs" before assaulting his mother, police said. Charging documents didn't say why he did it.

He squirted glue into her mouth before fleeing "into the woods with a bottle of moonshine," according to the criminal complaint.

He remerged some time later and allegedly threw a plastic bottle containing dip spit at the back of a neighbor's head and tried to hit the woman with a large potted plant, police said.
