Pia Zadora

SWAT Team Swarmed

After She Allegedly Chokes Son

6/3/2013 9:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


We now know why former Broadway star Pia Zadora was arrested in Vegas over the weekend ... she allegedly tried to choke out her son ... TMZ has learned.

Zadora -- who famously appeared in the Academy Award disaster scene in "Naked Gun 33⅓"  -- got into an argument Friday night with her 16-year-old son Jordan because he refused to go to bed at a timely hour.

Jordan told police he wanted to stay outside and talk to his stepbrother, so Zadora sprayed them with a hose to force them inside.

Jordan told cops his stepbrother tried to calm Pia down and she attacked him, punching him and scratching his face. 

An hour or 2 passed, and -- according to the police report -- Jordan tried calling 911.  He claims Pia tried to take his phone away, choking him in the process.

When cops arrived, they say everyone in the house -- Pia, her son and stepson, as well as her husband -- refused to come out to speak to them ... so SWAT formed a perimeter around the house.

Pia and her son Jordan eventually came out and spoke to police, and, according to the police report, Pia admitted she may have injured/scratched Jordan and her stepson during the scuffle ... but only by accident.

Judging by what I see around me and in the media with these lippy entitled teens I'm not sure I could guarantee their safety if I had to deal with them either.

perhaps justin biebers mom should do this to him.if so he wouldnt act like a little prick.what i take is the 16 year old didnt mind the she put some dicipline on he did the usual call the in school today are taught to call the cops when they "think" they have been happens every day.a mother or father tries to make their kids mind by yelling at thing you know the cops are at the house about a call the received about the kid being beaten.

I wonder what a belt would net you if your child decided to call the law. The saving grace was that she is female.... because if this was a gent whom had done this; there would be jail time.

Alcohol and prescription drugs sounds like the culprit here.

I never accidentally choked anyone and no one ever accidentally choked me. I mean, it's not like she tripped him and he fell on his face. I believe in discipline but NOT violence.

I only knew Pia Zadora as one of the first porn star in the 70's and 80's, she was in Playboy, Hustler, Penthouse, and a couple sexy movies, never seen her Broadway????

I was on the set of "Lonely Lady" --- the crew said that Pia Zadora had an IQ somewhere between moron and plant life.

I guarantee you neither of my sons at 16 or today, would ignore something I told them to do. They might ask to stay out longer, but if I had said no, that would be it. I would not choke them but Pia was a tiny little thing with little girl hands. Doubt the choking could have done any harm unless her son is a titty-suck. We know he's a disrespectful brat.
