Officers arrested Derek Hughes, 26, of 309 Woodview Drive, Monday afternoon after a domestic dispute with his mother occurred in their home in Bellefontaine.
The victim told officers after she had taken Hughes to his father’s to spend the night a few hours prior to the 2:25 p.m. call, he came back to her home banging on the door, seemingly drunk.
Hughes demanded Percocet and after he was refused, the victim reported he grabbed her and shoved her across the room.
Hughes told officers he did not put his hands on his mother.
Hughes’s mother stated that she had records of every encounter between her and her son because he had recently gotten more aggressive.
Hughes was arrested without incident and transported to Logan County Jail where he was lodged for domestic violence.
