What would a lovely spring day such as this be without a little bit of food-related family violence? Incomplete, say I.
Christopher Phillips got into an argument with his mother Rebecca, 55, “because Rebecca used Christopher’s salsa and taco sauce on her dinner,” according to a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office report.
After Phillips got in his mother’s face “screaming and yelling,” he allegedly “grabbed Rebecca in a head lock causing pain to her neck and breaking her eye glasses,” noted investigators.
And it didn’t end there.
Not satisfied that mom had learned her lesson, Phillips’ live-in girlfriend Lisa tyre decided to get in on the action. According to police, she started out simply by yelling and screaming, but soon bumped it up to smacking her in the face 4 times, cutting the inside of her lip.
The pair was arrested and charged with misdemeanour domestic battery. Phillips is being held in lieu of $750 bond while Tyre was released on her own recognizance.
