A 19-year-old male was arrested after video showed him strangling his mother, according to a Hamilton County affidavit.

According to an affidavit, Chattanooga police officers conducted a well-being check at 2671 Waterhaven Drive on August 19 around 2:30 p.m. after a man reviewed a video of his son, Garrett Behlau, strangling his mom, 54-year-old Theresa Behlau, until she was lifeless.
