In a bizarre and unsettling incident, 23-year-old Florida resident Christopher Phillips allegedly attacked his mother because she used his condiments.

Police say Phillips attacked his 55-year-old mother Rebecca because she used his taco sauce and salsa on her dinner. He reportedly began screaming at her and put her in a headlock, which caused both pain and broke her eyeglasses.

The mother eventually got away from her son, who then went to his room where his live-in girlfriend was. Lisa Tyre, his girlfriend, then came out of the room and began yelling at the mother as well. The police report says the 27-year-old slapped Rebecca four time and caused a small cut in her mouth.

The report says, “Rebecca then asked Christopher for her car keys (she gave them to him before the incident so he could use the car) so she could leave which he refused. Rebecca then left the house and walked to her husband’s work.”

Tyre was arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery, but was released on her own recognizance, while her boyfriend was charged and held in county jail in lieu of $750 bond.
