A Kennewick man was arrested Saturday for allegedly threatening to kill a man and attempting to strangle him after getting into an argument with his mother.
David King argued with his mother Christine Carroll, 59, at their home in the 1700 block of 45th Avenue before throwing a sandwich in her face, said a release from the Kennewick Police Department.
Ted Carroll, 66, intervened but King threatened to kill him and attempted to strangle him. Ted Carroll forced King out of the home but King then broke a window by forcing his arm through the glass, causing lacerations on his arm and severe blood loss, police said.
Ted Carroll struggled to keep King out of the home and eventually went back outside and fought him, hitting him at least once with a baseball bat. King managed to pin Ted Carroll and again attempted to strangle him, causing Ted Carroll to struggle to breathe temporarily until a neighbor intervened and restrained King.

Police and medics arrived and took King to Trios Health for treatment of his injuries. Once released from the hospital he was booked into the Benton County jail on suspicion of second-degree assault and felony harassment
