Arrest for Don Mattingly's Son -- Spitting Image

7/22/2009 3:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The son of former New York Yankees star Don Mattingly was arrested in Evansville, Indiana yesterday after cops say he shoved his poor mother to the ground -- then spit in her face.


According to an affidavit acquired by The Evansville Courier & Press, 24-year-old Taylor Mattingly told cops he jumped the fence at his mom's house to confront her over an insulting text message she sent to him.

Taylor also admitted he "snapped" and flipped over a patio table, broke a door and window and tossed furniture into the walls of their pool house.

Mattingly was booked in the county jail and faces preliminary charges of battery by bodily waste, battery and criminal mischief. He was released on $250 cash bond.

Lucky for him, the jail's camera was broken at the time -- so no mugshot for the hall of shame.

Obviously he should be checked for ROIDs. To attack your own mother means you have a problem.

Yeah, he beats his girlfriend (or wife/boyfriend/whatever), too. There's no way he can spit in his mom's face, then go home & be a sweetheart.

So, I'm sure we will see the same number of "THESE PEOPLE don't know how to act" comments that we would if the participants were BLACK, correct? Or do you egalitarian Klansmen give a pass to WHITE men who beat up their MOTHERS and SPIT on them? What vile and disgusting behavior from this white trailer trash!

If he isn't on drugs, it sounds like he needs a good psychologist and some meds - that's a LOT of rage, even before he got around to assaulting his mom.

You know this is a White mama. A Black mama would plunged the butcher's knife in her boy's chest for spitting on her. We should be hearing about young Taylor's tragic passing at the hands of his mother for disrepecting her.
