An 18-year-old boy beat his mother to stupor because she woke him up to prepare for school.
Reports said Kieran McNally brutally beat his mother, Frances, to stupor in the street while she begged for mercy, simply because she tried to get him to wake up and get ready for school.
It was gathered that Kieran was angry at the intrusion and he came downstairs in a fit, shouting at his mother.
She thought it best to leave the house and taking her dog, she ran from her house into Dean Park Road, but he came after them, chasing his mother and her dog down the road before pouncing on the woman from behind and hitting her.
As she begged for him to stop, he hit her even harder until a driver saw what was happening and pulled over to help her.
He then called the police and stayed with the woman until the authorities arrived and took her to the hospital.
Kieran was arrested and jailed for 18months. Depute fiscal Frank Clark told the Paisley Sheriff Court on Tuesday that it was not a new behaviour.
“She was treated for swelling and bruising on her face, a cut to her left hand and bruising and swelling to her left arm,” Clark said.
The court heard Kieran had previously fought with his dad Ross, leaving him in need of six stitches. He also threatened to burn the family home in Don Avenue, Renfrew.
It was also revealed in court that he had called his mother a “fat useless b*****d” and swore at his father during a quarrel on December 14, 2015. He even threatened to kill his father during the argument.
The battered woman sustained injuries to her face, eye socket, hand and arm.
