Mercer Island Police say a 13-year-old boy was assaulted by his drunk father on Aug. 23 at 10 p.m. in a late night argument at a home on the 6100 block of 90th Avenue SE.

The 49-year-old resident threw a chair at the teenager during a verbal argument and then chased him to his room, kicked through his door and threatened him. The father, still intoxicated and angry, later drove his son to a pharmacy. Child Protective Services were notified of the incident.
