He is a wreck. On suicide watch. Realizes he's facing a felony for destroying the phone while I was calling 911. Wants to get out. I told him sometimes they make deals to drop charges in exchange for drug treatment or rehab or mental health etc. He's willing to do that; probably not entirely for the right reason but at least he's coming around a bit. Still a bit defiant but began crying each time I suggested I should leave now. Hopefully on Thurs when I go back (if he doesn't get out before then) he will be thinking more clearly with the drugs out of his system. He is still insisting I tried to choke him; there was an altercation where I tried to keep him from running away but I did NOT try to choke him. He's just trying to draw attention away from himself by saying he's NOT going to live at home since he "can't be assured of his safety". Juvie is best place for him right now since he would not go to mental health place.
