A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”
― Washington Irving
Ladies and gentlemen meet Troy Fields of Stoughton. This unemployed 19-year-old was at his mother’s home in Stoughton, MA on Tuesday morning at 9am, when his mom asked him to turn down the volume on the television, because she was “unable to concentrate on her work” with it being so loud. Seems like a reasonable request, right? So, how did her grateful, loving son respond? He beat and choked her, threatened to kill her with a knife, smacked her glasses off of her face, and then pushed her onto her bed and tried to strangle her to death. I’m guessing Mother’s Day this year didn’t include flowers and chocolates for this household.
She eventually got free and managed to call the teenager’s father, who then immediately called police. When the authorities arrived, Fields repeatedly screamed at his mother and referred to her as a “cunt” in front of the PD. Officer Robert Kuhn claimed that Fields was “extremely upset” and “uncontrollable” at the scene.
“I observed scrapes and marks around (the mother’s) neck consistent with that of being choked, she had slight bruising in the front portion of her neck as well,” Kuhn wrote.
Fields, who has been living with his mother in Apt. 152 at 47 Wheeler Circle, was charged with aggravated strangulation and domestic assault.
At his arraignment, Fields was held without bail pending a probation violation hearing set for Aug. 3. He was on supervised probation from Mecklenburg Superior Court in Charlotte, North Carolina.
This is not the first time this sweet young lad has been accused of attacking mommy dearest, although this time he is being held without bail (finally a good judge in MA) – In a September assault case with his mother, Fields was released on $5,000 bail. In this week’s case, Fields will remain in jail until a probation hearing in early August.
