New Port Richey man accused of throwing 89-year-old mother to the ground

NEW PORT RICHEY — Police say they arrived at the scene to find Richard Lee Wolfe, 49, drunk in a house where he wasn't supposed to be. He told them he called 911 because he'd done a bad thing to his 89-year-old mother. Officers couldn't find her.

They searched Wednesday night through the neighborhood around 6433 River Road, according to a New Port Richey police report. The woman, unable to walk on her own, was on her hands and knees a street over from the home.

She told officers she and Wolfe were in an argument around 10 p.m. when he grabbed her by the hair and threw her to the floor. She crawled several blocks to get away from her son.

Wolfe, whose address is listed as his mother's home, was arrested on charges of domestic battery on a person 65 years or older and trespassing after a warning. He was taken to the Land O'Lakes jail where he was held in lieu of $50,000 bail on the battery charge.
