Boy, 11, charged with breaking mom's arm


Deputies arrested an 11-year-old Fort Myers boy after he reportedly broke his mom's arm during a fight at their home Saturday.

Matthew Dunn was booked into the Lee County Jail on a charge of felony battery.

Dunn's mother said the boy became upset when she and her boyfriend began talking about Dunn's father at the dining room table Saturday evening, according to an arrest report.

The boy reportedly stood up from the table, threw it over and then started striking his mom as she tried to calm him down.

Dunn's anger escalated, prompting his mother and the rest of the family to run out of the home, the report said. That's when the boy reportedly followed her, threw a rock at her and then twisted her arm.

The woman's boyfriend intervened, and as she ran back inside Dunn threw a golf ball through the window of the home, deputies said.

He then began to take his anger out on himself, hitting his head against a tree, according to the report.

EMS arrived on scene and determined the woman had sustained a broken arm. She was taken to Lee Memorial Hospital for treatment.
