LADY LAKE, Fla. (TND) — Mothers and daughters can have their moments, but a mom in Florida called the sheriff’s office to say her daughter “had battered her and had stolen her phone,” the arrest report said.

The call was last Tuesday, Dec. 19, but she said it happened two days earlier.

The two live together and the mom, who’s reportedly in her 70s, told the deputy her daughter “had started screaming in her room due to her being upset.

“The defendant had gone into the victim’s room and the defendant gave the victim her phone.

“The victim stated she then exited the defendant’s room and started working on Christmas cards in the kitchen area.

“The victim advised the defendant exited her room, walked up behind the victim, grabbed the victim by her right shoulder, and slammed the victim to the ground with two hands.

“The victim stated the defendant then dragged the victim across the floor into the living room area, where she continued to beat the victim with the cellphone in her hand.”

Then, the mom told her daughter to get out, which she did, but then “she realized the defendant stole her phone.”

According to the arrest report, it was a red iPhone, unknown model, worth $400.

It also said the mom had a large bruise on her right forearm, “from when the defendant threw her to the ground,” as well as a bruise on the top of her left hand.

And, the deputy added, two days after the alleged violence, the mom seemed “to be very frightened that the defendant would return to the residence and continue to cause her further harm.”

Six hours after taking the report, “the defendant was possibly at her residence,” so the deputy drove over and found Ashley Marie Baird.

“The defendant spontaneously stated upon her own free will, ‘Put me in jail. I hurt [redacted],’” and the deputy complied.

She didn’t say anything else.

Baird, 38, was charged with battery on a person 65 or older, and larceny petit theft, and she’s being held without bond.
