BRISTOL - A city man already accused of assaulting his 83-year-old mother was arrested again Friday, just a day after a judge allowed him to return home, after he was allegedly involved in another physical dispute with the elderly woman.

Kirk Marshall, 62, is facing charges of interfering with a 911 call, disorderly conduct, violation of a protective order and violation of probation.

According to the police report, Marshall’s mother tried to wake him up Friday morning for a counseling session he was supposed to go to. A van driver was outside the home waiting to take him to the session.

Marshall used expletives toward the 83-year-old woman and threw spare change at her. When she said she was calling police, the report continued, he allegedly grabbed her phone and stopped her. The woman was able to get the phone back and called police at 7:52 a.m.

This happened a day after Marshall appeared in Bristol Superior Court in connection with another pending case. During that hearing, a protective order was modified, allowing him to live at his mother’s home once again.

That order was first issued after Marshall was arrested March 17 on charges of third-degree assault of an elderly victim and second-degree breach of peace. According to police, he shoved his mother down onto the ground in the garage of her home and left her there, helpless.

Following this arrest, Marshall, of 37 New St., was charged Friday with violating his probation, which he is serving for a Jan. 21, 2015, conviction of third-degree larceny.

On Monday in court, Marshall was ordered held on $175,000 bond and issued another protective order, which forbids him from contacting his mother or living with her. He is due back in court on May 18.
