FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A Fort Lauderdale woman was arrested Saturday after police said she struck her son with a metal pipe because she was unhappy with how he cleaned his room.

According to the arrest report, officers found the boy outside his home in the 1500 block of Northwest 11th Court. The boy told officers that his mother took away his house key and pushed him out the door after she struck him several times with the pipe, the report said.
