Swan Williams, 47, choked an officer of the New York Police Department when he attempted to arrest her 26-year-old son over shoplifting.


The crime happened when two officers arrived at the home of the mother and her son to arrest him.

Swan was charged with two assault counts and four counts of obstructing the officers from committing their duties. 

At first it was reported that she served as an off-duty New York City probation officer however the agency itself denied it.

“[The agency] does not have a record of a Swan Williams employed or retired with the agency,” it said in a statement.

 It is unknown whether her son was arrested with her or not.
