A man broke his mother’s dishes over a phone charger, according to Tennessee police.

Police were called to a residence in Murfreesboro, on Sunday, after a 23-year- old became indignant when his mother refused to return his cell phone charger until he finished washing the dishes.

The man vented his anger by breaking some of those dishes that he was ordered to wash.

After throwing around and damaging several items in the kitchen, his mother, who has had enough of him, called police.

The man told police that he and his 41-year-old mother, got into an argument about a phone charger and the dishes in the sink.

The mother confirmed that she would not give it to him until the dishes were done.

When asked about the damage to the kitchen, the man admitted to throwing a glass in the sink, breaking it, and slamming the door of the dishwasher, which caused minor damage, Officer Stuart Ogg said.

Police removed the man from the scene.
He could face charges of domestic violence.
