Teen Used MMA Moves on Mom, Sister over Cellphone Loss
He is accused of domestic battery.
A Land O' Lakes teen faces domestic battery charges after deputies say he used MMA-style moves on his mother and sister.
According to a Pasco County complaint affidavit, the 16-year-old became "physically abusive" toward his mother and sister after his cellphone was taken away.
The teen choked, kicked and performed MMA (mixed martial arts) moves on his sister, then chased his mother and "placed her in a physically restraining MMA move," the report stated.
The teen, whose name is being withheld because of his age, admitted to the acts in a non-custodial interview, according to the report. He was arrested and transported to the juvenile assessment center without incident.
