A Millheim woman was taken into custody Monday after her child claimed she hit and choked him.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, state police at Rockview responded at about 9 a.m. Sunday to the 100 block of Penn Street in Millheim for a physical altercation between family members.
On arrival, the trooper spoke with a 13-year-old boy, police said, who reported his mother, Miracle J. Good, 43, had been “drinking heavily” the previous evening and became physical when he asked her to buy him school supplies.
The boy said he became upset and called Good a “bad mother,” police said. At that point, she allegedly struck him in the face with her fist then threw him to the ground, choking him for about 20 seconds.
The boy’s 15-year-old sister corroborated the events, police said. The boy was reportedly observed with scratches, cuts and bruises on his face, neck and shoulder.
Good was arraigned Monday before District Judge Kelley Gillette-Walker, according to court documents, and charged with a felony count of endangering the welfare of children and a misdemeanor charge of simple assault. Straight monetary bail was set at $50,000 and she was taken to the Centre County Correctional Facility.
A preliminary hearing is slated for Wednesday.
