RIVERSIDE – A Riverside resident who violated an order of protection pinned his mother to the floor of her residence for hours last week after becoming drunk and passing out, police said.

Robert Golba, 55, was drinking heavily May 9 and started arguing with his 81-year-old mother, police said. He passed out and fell on top of her, pinning his mother to the floor of her kitchen for several hours, police said.

The woman was unable to move but eventually summoned relatives, who called police at about 4 p.m., police said. Emergency personnel arrived and transported the woman to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood for treatment, police said. Robert Golba was taken to McNeal Hospital in Berwyn for treatment.

Officers discovered that an order of protection had been taken out against Golba for violating a previous order of protection, for which he was found guilty and sentenced to a year in prison, police said. When he was released, the order of protection was renewed and stipulated that he was not allowed in the residence while he was under the influence of any type of substance, police said. Golba was living with his mother in her home in Riverside, police said.

While interviewing the woman at Loyola University Medical Center, officers were told that she had required surgery upon admission to the hospital, police said. Her hip was broken in three different places, police said.

Golba was charged with one count of felony violation of an order of protection, police said.
