On Friday July 11th at 11:40 pm the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office responded to a reported burglary at a residence on Cedar Lane near Marianna.

     Upon the officers’ arrival they learned that the intoxicated complainants went out for a night of drinking and told their 13 year-old son not to enter their residence. The 13 year-old has been residing next door with his adult sister because of family problems, but still has all of his belongings and a bedroom at the parents’ home.

     The 13 year-old entered the residence and retrieved his PlayStation 3 to keep himself occupied. When the parents returned home and realized he had been in the house they went next door and an altercation ensued.

     During the course of the disturbance the father, Norman Cooper, reportedly punched the child in the stomach and slapped him twice. The child subsequently fled the residence.

     The father then armed himself with a claw hammer and began chasing the child around, attempting to strike him. When he was unable to catch him, he threw the hammer at the boy, missing him. The father then attempted to tackle the boy, but missed and fell into the side of the trailer causing damage to the skirting.

     The mother, Patricia Cooper, became involved in the affray and grabbed the child in a choke hold from behind, eventually throwing him to the floor. Despite the lengthy altercation the child was relatively unharmed.

     After they returned to their respective residences, the parents contacted law enforcement to report that the child had burglarized their home. A witness confirmed the child’s account of the incident.

     Both parents were placed under arrest and lodged in the Jackson County Correctional Facility to await first appearance.
