A Statham man was arrested last week after repeatedly striking his 66-year-old mother. A deputy was dispatched to 102 Dyno Trail in Statham after the victim called saying she had been injured in an attack by her son.

The woman said her son was drunk and began swearing at her and her ten-year-old granddaughter.

The son, Franklin Eugene Johnson, age 41, then became violent pushing the bristle end of a broom into his mother’s face and kicking her in the lower back. Johnson then broke the faucet on the kitchen sink and broke a mop handle.

When the victim attempted to leave the residence, Johnson slammed the door on her hand causing a cut and bruising.

The victim said she was terrified of her son and was afraid to return to the residence.

The granddaughter corroborated the victim’s story. The girl said her father was intoxicated and that she was scared for her grandmother’s safety.

When Johnson arrived home several hours later, deputies returned to place him under arrest.

Johnson’s wife met with deputies and gave them a key to the residence. The deputies found Johnson in bed.

When the deputies identified themselves, Johnson began swearing and demanded to know why they were there.

As deputies attempted to place Johnson in handcuffs, he continued to yell and swear at them.

Deputies searched Johnson and left his personal belongings, including his wallet, in the bedroom.

Once in the patrol car, Johnson became more belligerent demanding his wallet and claiming he had over $900 in it.

The wife refused to let deputies retrieve the wallet saying she needed the money for her children.

Johnson was charged with family violence battery, family violence simple battery, criminal trespass and third degree cruelty to children.
