Palmetto, Florida (SafeCITY) - Mark Foreman, a 53-year-old Palmetto man was jailed after he allegedly pushed his girlfriend's mother onto a hide-a-bed and then folded it up into a couch, trapping her inside.

According to the Palmetto Police Department, Foreman reportedly went to the home of his ex-girlfriend's mother around 9:00 p.m. and asked to use her restroom.

The woman suffered minor injuries to her wrist and back and was taken to Manatee Memorial Hospital for treatment. Police believe Foreman was intoxicated during the assault.

Foreman was booked into the Manatee County jail and charged with battery of a person over 65. He is being held in lieu of $25,000 bond.
