“I’m Just Going To Kill You” Florida Man Who Called 911 For A Ride Home, Arrested Again For Strangling Mom

You may remember Florida man Matthew Leatham, who was arrested in February for repeated calls to 911 for a ride home.

Well, Leatham is back in the news, and this time, for choking his mother.

According to Pasco County Sheriff, the now 23-year-old was home asleep when his mom came into his room to wake him up and take him to work.

In the affidavit, Leatham’s mom told deputies that Leatham was intoxicated and when he stood up Leatham said to his mother, “I can’t do this anymore, I’m just going to kill you.”

According to deputies, Leatham picked up a TV and threw it at the victim. As she attempted to flee the room, Leatham grabbed his mother around the neck, using the inside of his elbow, and applied pressure until his mother “faded out”.

Leatham denied choking his mother when questioned by investigators but was later arrested and charged.

He has been released from Pasco County Jail on a $10,000 bond.

  1. Well, even if they are related to you, don’t let psycho’s into your home. Don’t try to help them, they don’t want it.

  2. Morons let him out. He will eventually kill his mother and when that happens, the judge who let him walk should be disbarred and brought up on murder charges as an accomplice!
