Jan. 22 (UPI) -- A Tennessee man might be hit with a domestic assault charge after he became violent following an argument with his mother about washing dirty dishes.

The mother of the unnamed 23-year-old man refused to return his cell phone charger until he finished washing the dishes, and the man began breaking things in the kitchen.

After officers responded to his 41-year-old mother’s call for help, the man “admitted to throwing a glass in the sink, breaking it, and also slamming the door of the dishwasher, causing minor damage,” Officer Stuart Ogg wrote in a report.

The man also allegedly chased his mother into a bedroom. She hid there until police arrived.

“(Her son) took a credit card and forced himself into the bedroom, pinning her behind the door,” Ogg said.

Following the incident, the man attempted to leave but couldn’t start his car.

“(The man) advised that he and his mother got into an argument about a phone charger and dishes in the sink,” Ogg said. “(He) stated that he was wanting the charger for his phone but his mother would not give it to him until the dishes were put away.”
