      Man accused of attacking mother over salsa

      Christopher Phillips, 23

      A Florida man is facing charges after police say he attacked his own mother because she used his salsa and taco sauce without his permission.

      Last Monday, Manatee County Sheriff's deputies were called out to the home of 55-year-old Rebecca Phillips.

      Authorities say her son, 23-year-old Christpher, put his mother in a head lock and broke her glasses when he became upset that she ate his salsa.

      They say after the argument the son went to his room.

      But the violence wasn't over.

      Deputies say his live-in girlfriend, 27-year-old Lisa Tyre, then got involved, slapping the mother in the face.

      Christopher Phillips and Tyre were both arrested and charged with a misdemeanor domestic battery.
