What a dip.
Cops jailed a Florida man and his girlfriend on Monday after the two allegedly attacked his mother because she used his salsa and taco sauce without permission, according to police reports obtained by the Smoking Gun.
Christopher Phillips, 23, started arguing with his mom, 55-year-old Rebecca, "because Rebecca used Christopher's salsa and taco sauce on her dinner," an officer wrote.
The saucy swindle apparently enraged the man -- he allegedly put his mother in such a crushing headlock that her glasses broke.
Christopher Phillips then went into another room to relay the horrific news to his girlfriend, Lisa Tyre, who then also began yelling at the mother. That argument escalated, leaving Rebecca Phillips with two smacks to the face and a cut lip.
When her son wouldn't let her have the keys to her car to leave, she walked to her husband's workplace, where they called cops.
Christopher Phillips was charged with domestic battery and held on a $750 bond. Tyre was released on her own recognizance the same day she was arrested.
