Johnson County Sheriff’s Office deputies on Dec. 23 arrested a 34-year old-man on a charge of assault family violence by impeding breath.

Deputies responded that day to the 8600 block of County Road 1010 on a disturbance call. The mother of the 8-year-old victim told deputies that Everitt Custio Womack of Johnson County choked her son and then slammed him to the floor.

A deputy noted that the child was crying and would not speak to him because Womack was still in the room. The deputy moved the child and his mother to another room at which point the child said he was wrestling with Womack’s 11-year-old daughter in the living room.

The child said Womack then grabbed and squeezed his neck before throwing him to the floor adding that he had a hard time breathing during the incident. Deputies noted red marks on the side of the boy’s neck.

Johnson County Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Judge Ronny McBroom set Womack’s bond at $15,000 and issued an emergency protective order against him.
