          38-Year-Old Man Says His Mother Gave Him Two Black Eyes, So He Took Out A Restraining Order And Cut Her Out Of His Life


          December 9, 2016

          Sharlene says her son, Tom, is verbally abusive to her. But when she punched him in the face, leaving him with two black eyes, Tom says that was his “wake-up call.” The 38-year-old, who claims he’s financially supported his mother for years, says he took out a restraining order and cut her out of his life.
