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.

Time to give him the real treatment and put him in the Octagon with Jon Jones for punishment.

what the hell kind of article is this? "mma moves"? You sure it wasn't a "boxing move" or a "wrestling move"? There is no such thing as an MMA move. MMA is the science of being able to do the different "moves" from different martial arts in the same contest. Must be nice to live a life of ignorance. Reality suck sometimes.

Ok... Someone fill me in. What are MMA moves? MMA stands for mixed martial arts which is the mix of all martial arts from aikido to Zumba. Did she Zumba for her phone??? Everytime you have a lame story please don't use buzz words because they might make you look like a fool.

Our crime reports are based on the information in arrest reports. In this case, the basic "MMA-style" description was what was used in the deputy's report without further detail.
