CALTAGIRONE, Italy, Aug. 2 (UPI) -- A 61-year-old man from Caltagirone, Italy, turned up at the local police station with his 81-year-old mother after she cut off his weekly allowance.

The man's mother also took his house keys away after he did not come home when he was supposed to and did not tell her where he was going when he went out, ANSA reported Thursday.


The 81-year-old woman also went to police in an attempt to convince her "hard-headed" son to "behave correctly with his mama."

The son said his mother was the one behaving badly, adding, "My weekly allowance isn't enough ... and she doesn't even cook well."

The mother told police: "My son doesn't respect me, he never tells me where he goes at night and comes home at all hours." She added: "I was forced to punish him by taking away his keys after he yet again came home late at night. And he always complains about my cooking. This just couldn't go on."

A local police officer convinced the mother and son to return home together where the 81-year-old mother gave her son back his keys and allowance.
