Yob attacked his mum after she refused to return PlayStation controller

Gaming got out of hand for one yob who attacked his mum after she refused to return a PlayStation controller to the raging gamer.

Aaron Leslie Jones, 20, attacked his mother Alana after she refused to return his controller, instead attempting take it into the garden, at which point she was attacked by her son.

His dad, Wayne, pulled him away from his mother, who he attacked after she turned her back, but the 20-year-old was convicted of assault at a recent Mold Crown Court hearing, NorthWalesLive reported.

Jones' barrister noted that the 20-year-old had several mental health problems, with one potential case of schizophrenia cited.

The defendant was sentenced to 15 months in custody after breaching a suspended sentence for a previous offence, and was also handed a one-month term to run concurrently for the assault.

Alana is said to have taken the controller after Aaron borrowed it from his brother without permission, in turn causing quite the scene and a horrid assault.

Jones is said to have grabbed his mum's arm and pushed her with such force that she fell into recycling boxes, which prompted the defendant's father to pull Jones off of his mother.

Prosecution statements were made noting the "mild reddening" of the mother's chest after the assault, with her 20-year-old son convicted of assaulting his mother by beating her.

Jones is currently undergoing assessments after Thomas McLoughlin, defending, said his client was suffering mental health issues, one of which may be schizophrenia.

Recorder John Philpotts noted that Jones was in breach of a suspended sentence for theft in a previous offence.

Philpotts added that it was fortunate his mother had not been seriously hurt and noted that Jones' previous convictions included violent disorder.

Jones has been sent into detention and a restraining order imposed on him from when he is released from custody, the judge ruled.
