FAIRBANKS — A Fairbanks man who has been arrested and convicted twice of beating his mother in the past year during arguments about his methamphetamine habit was charged with misdemeanor assault and criminal mischief last week for another incident involving his mother in August.
Joseph Edward Holmes, 35, allegedly placed his mother in fear of injury and damaged her house on Aug. 29.
According to charging documents, Holmes threatened to assault his mother if she didn’t allow him in her home on Rickert Street. When she refused, Holmes broke three double-paned windows, kicked in her front door and crawled through the window.
The mother told police Holmes was mad because she bought his sister a vehicle and he didn’t get any money from her.
Holmes has been convicted twice of assaulting his mother, once in December of last year when she became upset he was smoking methamphetamine in her bathroom and again in April, just days after he had completed a 60-day jail term for the first incident. In the latter incident, Holmes broke two of his mother’s ribs. That incident also stemmed from an argument about his methamphetamine use in her bathroom, according to court documents.
In October, Holmes was charged with felony assault for punching his sister in the kidney 15 times.
