VERO BEACH – A woman contacted the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office after her son showed up at her house intoxicated.

Charles Roy Masterson, 23, was living with a girlfriend in Fort Pierce but has recently been staying with his mother. All seemed good until Charles showed up drunk Thursday night.

The mother told deputies that she allowed Charles to “enter the residence with the understanding that he would go to sleep and not be a disruption to her household,” according to the report.

She also said that Charles does not contribute to the household and there’s nothing that establishes his residence at the location. The mother asked deputies to remove him from the property.

Deputies told Charles that he had to leave, and that’s when he became extremely argumentative. He attempted to collect clothes before leaving but failed to do so without being “belligerent and uncooperative.”

Charles left, but then returned a short time later. He started a verbal argument with his mother and “made physical motions by bowing his chest as if to physically fight his mother,” the report said.

The deputy then attempted to take Charles into custody but he pulled away and ran from the residence.

Charles, who works as a drywaller, returned again and tried to enter the residence. This time the deputy arrested and transported him to the Indian River County Jail.
