A Texas woman and her boyfriend were arrested for allegedly punishing her 13-year-old son by tying a rope around his genitals and subjecting him to waterboarding, authorities said Thursday.

According to an affidavit filed by a Kaufman County sheriff’s investigator, the boy told investigators Casey Shackleford, the mother’s boyfriend, allegedly grabbed him by the hair, pinned him down and held a towel over his face as Christi Howell, his mother, poured water over his head and nose.
