The Mattingly Family: A Blogger’s Wet Dream.

I write about them Monday, and this appears Wednesday:

Mattingly's Son Accused of Spitting in Mom's Face.
(07-22) 19:14 PDT Indianapolis (AP) --

The son of former New York Yankees star first baseman Don Mattingly was arraigned Wednesday on misdemeanor charges of shoving his mother and spitting in her face after she allegedly sent him an insulting text message.

Mattingly acknowledged pushing his mother down and spitting on her, smashing a patio table, flipping over a second table and damaging a patio door and a window.

Taylor Mattingly, who was drafted by the Yankees in the 42nd round in 2003 but no longer plays professionally, said his mother had been drinking and that when she gets drunk she calls him and makes rude comments.

Kim Mattingly told police her son was upset because she had been unable to get an auto dealership to trade in his car for another model. Kim Mattingly also had satellite TV service shut off at the nearby home where her son was staying. About 15 minutes after the service was cut, the affidavit says, Taylor Mattingly arrived at his mother's home and they began to argue.

Taylor Mattingly launched into an "abusive tirade" against his mother before picking up a chair and using it to smash a glass patio table — a piece of which cut Kim Mattingly's upper thigh. The affidavit states that Jordan Mattingly told his brother to leave the home, at which point Taylor Mattingly threw a piece of furniture inside a pool house, denting a wall, and then left.


You know, I wasn’t going to attend the film festival in Indiana, but I just may have to. They really know how to put the “k” in “klassy.”
