A Moore mother was arrested Wednesday along with her juvenile son, who was accused of attacking one of his mom's arresting deputies.

According to a Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office report, deputies pulled over 40-year-old Leslie Stanley along Bayberry Drive about 8:15 a.m. after they noticed her car's license plate came back revoked from North Carolina and it had a cracked driver's side view windshield.

After running Stanley's information, deputies said she was wanted in Union County for driving under suspension, so they placed her under arrest.

Deputies said once Stanley's son realized she was being arrested, he showed them that he had a small bag of marijuana.

As deputies went to arrest her son on a possession of marijuana charge, they said he resisted by pushing a deputy in the chest and during the struggle, he punched one of the deputies in the face.

The other deputy struck Stanley's son with his baton until he stopped fighting back, according to deputies. The report said the injured deputy had a bloodied and swollen lip.

Stanley's son was first taken to the hospital to be checked over then was arrested and charged with simple possession of marijuana and two counts of resisting arrest.

Stanley was arrested and cited for driving under suspension and habitual traffic offender before she was released on a $3,605 bond.
