We’ve all heard crazy gaming stories and the claims that Fortnite can be as addicting as cocaine (lol), but this one is certainly up there. A Florida woman has reportedly dislocated her son’s jaw because he wouldn’t quit playing Fortnite.
Ann Perugia, a 35-year-old mom from South Dayton, Florida was arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse with physical injury after being accused of assaulting her 10-year-old son. The incident is said to have taken place on October 23rd according to information obtained by WFLA.
That information also states that unnamed minor was asked to take a shower and after “he forgot to do as he was told” he said, he was asked if he’d taken a shower yet, responding “no.” This led to Perugia coming into the bathroom and punching him causing his jaw to dislocate.
Perugia’s side of the story is that she followed him into the bathroom after he said no and inquired as to why he had an attitude to which he responded “I hate you and you don’t do anything for me.”
Following the incident, Perugia is claimed to have called the child’s father, Brian Butler, so that he could come and pick up the child. When he arrived it is reported that the child was standing outside with a bag of clothes. Perugia eventually came out and told Butler to go and take their son with him.
Following Perugia’s arrest, the 10-year-old is currently staying with his aunt as his father does not currently have full custody rights according to WFLA.
