According to court documents, Pack reportedly pinned her 10-year-old son against a bed with her elbow on his throat, hurting him and restricting his breathing. She’s also accused of taking his phone and the Amazon Dot device from his room when he tried to use it to call his dad for help.

Pack is facing second-degree assault of a child.

A restraining order has also been filed against her by her husband who says Pack has a long history of alcohol abuse.
