PALM COAST — A Brookhaven Drive woman was arrested on Oct. 14 after hitting her son with a belt to punish him for skipping school, according to a report from the Flagler County Sheriff's Office.

The woman had received a call from her 16-year-old son's school advising her that he had been absent that day. The boy was unaware the school had called his mother, and when he arrived home, she spanked him with a belt. He escaped into the back yard, where she tackled him, hit him in the head with a closed fist and bit him on the back, the report said. The woman denied biting her son, but deputies found fresh bite marks on his back.
