East Naples man knocks out mom after she complained of his martial arts, deputies say MUGSHOT

An East Naples man is accused of knocking his mother unconscious after she became angry with him for practicing martial arts in the house.

Cory William Morrel, 27, of the 7800 block of Regal Heron Circle, was arrested Friday by Collier County sheriff’s deputies at home.

According to a Sheriff’s Office report, deputies were dispatched to Morrel’s home in reference to a woman who was kicked in the head and was knocked unconscious for five minutes.

When deputies arrived, they said Morrel’s mother was unable to recall what happened and appeared disoriented and nervous. She yelled several times at Morrel, asking him what happened, reports said.

Morrel told deputies that while practicing martial arts in the living room, he accidentally kicked a wall causing a scuff mark. He said his mother became angry with him and began yelling profanity at him.

It is unclear what happened next due to redacted information regarding Morrel kicking his mother in the head. However, Morrel said he then called 911 when she became unconscious.

She was transported to an NCH hospital for further medical treatment.

Morrel faces a charge of domestic battery.
