ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A man who choked his mother after an argument over a trivia game at a restaurant has been sentenced to six years in prison.

Twenty-eight-year-old Nicholas Perrin of Severna Park was sentenced Wednesday in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court in Annapolis. He had pleaded guilty to first-degree assault in November.

The Capital of Annapolis reports (https://bit.ly/1jrjx7O) that a judge recommended him for placement at Patuxent Institution in Jessup for mental health treatment.

Prosecutors say Nicholas Perrin and his mother, Joy Perrin, had argued over a trivia question at a Pasadena restaurant on July 3. Authorities say Nicholas Perrin got behind his mother, wrapped his legs around her torso and put her in a choke hold. Bystanders came to the woman’s rescue.
