Police: Idaho Teen Stabbed Mother Over MySpace Dispute

An 18-year-old Hayden, Idaho, man is accused of stabbing his mother after she forbade him to use the Internet social networking site MySpace.

Terry Gene Starnes was arrested last week for investigation of aggravated assault after his mother, Shelley Sue Pangle, said he cut her wrist.

Pangle says she confronted her 6-foot-2, 320-pound son, after which he became aggravated and packed his belongings to leave their home.

Police say he pulled a black and silver knife from his pocket as his mother tried to take his cellular telephone charger from him.

Starnes rode off on his bicycle but was later detained by police.

He was released from Kootenai County Jail on Monday.
