Deputies: Spring Hill man batters 71-year-old mother


Published:

SPRING HILL – Sean Backman, 37, was arrested last week after battering his elderly mother.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to a Waycross Drive home the night of Aug. 28, and the victim told law enforcement Backman was arguing with her and pushed her upper body.

Multiple witnesses said Backman pushed his mother to the floor and dragged her by her arm, according to the arrest affidavit.

Backman told the deputies he never hit or pushed anyone. He was arrested on charges of battery on a person 65 years or older, and is being held on $2,000 bond.

Court records show Backman has previously been found guilty of felony driving with a suspended or revoked license.
