West Monroe police arrested a West Monroe man last week for pushing his mother to the kitchen floor on New Year’s Eve and trying to choke her.

Andrew M. Clemons, 32, of 103 Riverbend Drive, West Monroe, was booked at Ouachita Correctional Center for domestic abuse battery.

According to the Dec. 31 arrest report, the victim claimed her son, Clemons, attacked her.

She said Clemons grabbed her shirt, pushed her to the kitchen floor and held her there with his hands around her neck and chest.

A witness, interviewed by deputies, confirmed the victim's account.

During questioning, Clemons admitted he engaged in a fight with his mother but claimed he was only defending himself.
