Mom has teen busted for not cleaning room
(John Nickerson) A city teenager was charged with disorderly conduct Sunday night after police say he challenged officers’ authority and refused to put his pants on.
Luis Perez, 18, of 52 Congress St., was held in lieu of $5,000 bond. Perez’s 54-year-old mother, in whose house Perez lives, called police to report her son was swearing at her during a family altercation about Luis Perez‘s lack of cleanliness.
According to Sgt. Simon Blanc, the mother told police she leaves her home clean and orderly before working 12 hours a day as a nanny. The home is a mess when she returns, and Luis Perez invites over people whom she doesn’t know, she told police.
On Sunday night, she complained to her son after she arrived to find a messy home and one of his friends visiting, she told police. She said her son became confrontational and swore at her, Blanc said. When she said she would call police, Perez swore and said he did not care, Blanc said.
Police, escorted to his room, discovered Perez under blankets without pants, talking on a cellphone.
When asked to go downstairs and talk to his mother, Perez said he was not coming out and that police were invading his privacy. He said police were breaking the law by coming into his room and he wouldn’t put his pants on, Blanc said.
He said he was in his “drawers” and “he has rights,” Blanc said.
While police tried to determine the problem between son and mother, Perez continued to be uncooperative and hostile toward his mother, Blanc said.
Perez’s mother explained to police that she could no longer live this way because she was afraid of her son and said she wanted him out of the house.
Luis Perez yelled more and was placed under arrest.
Perez threatened to speak to his lawyer and told police what they were doing was not right. As he was being escorted out of the house in handcuffs, however he asked police for a second chance and to be released, Blanc said.
