If you ever wanted to know how to get your mom to watch movies with you, just ask Robert Tuttle for a little advice. Last Thursday, the 22-year-old allegedly forced his mother to watch hours of movies with him by threatening her with his axe.

According to the 60-year-old mother, Tuttle was drunk and began swinging the ax throughout the home, destroying items in the house. She says he also took a swing at her, but she ducked to avoid death-by-axe. He then forced her to keep him company while he watched movies in his bedroom.

At roughly 10AM the following morning, Tuttle's mother escaped from her son's bedroom and called the police. Deputies arrived on the scene shortly after and arrested Tuttle. He's now charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment and possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
