Daughter Busts Abusive Mom With Camera Phone

What do you do when your mother sits on you?

For one Florida teenager, the answer came easily: Pull out your cell phone and call for help. And while you're at it, snap a photo.

Early Friday, just before 2 a.m., Tiffanie Haynes, 18, and her mother, Theodosia Haynes, 37, were deep in a shouting match.

According to the Hernando County Sheriff's Office, Tiffanie didn't like that her mother was intruding into her personal business.

The shouting escalated.

Theodosia followed her daughter into her bedroom and pinned Tiffanie on the bed by sitting on top of her.

Somehow, Tiffanie managed to get out her cell phone and call 911. Then she snapped a few photos on her phone to document what her mother was doing.

She shared them with Deputy Michael Stegner when he arrived.

Theodosia was arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery. For her part, she told the deputy that she was just restraining her daughter so that the fight wouldn't get worse.

We don't know if sitting on your kid is child abuse or domestic battery, but it's pretty fucking weird. Who sits on their kids?
