Man holds his mother hostage for not doing his ironing

A man in the US has been charged after authorities say he took his mother hostage for six hours because she refused to do his ironing for him.

The 29-year-old man is facing charges of aggravated assault and false imprisonment after he allegedly pulled a gun on his mother and wouldn’t let her leave the house for at least six hours when she wouldn’t iron his clothes.

Sergeant Marc Griffith of Carroll County Sheriff’s Office in Georgia said that the man, who lives with his parents in Villa Rica, Georgia, insisted that doing the ironing was ‘woman’s work’.

‘Mama finally said, "I’m not ironing your clothes," and he went cuckoo on her,’ Griffith told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, saying the man then pulled out a gun, took his mother’s keys and mobile phone, and refused to let her leave.

The 51-year-old mother eventually managed to escape, and went to a police station. She was unharmed in the incident. The man surrendered to police without incident, and is being held in jail.
