Taylor Mattingly, the son of legendary Yankees first baseman Don Mattingly, was arrested in Indiana after allegedly assaulting his mother and spitting on her.

Mattingly told investigators he was upset at an insulting text message by his mother, Kim Mattingly, and admitted "he snapped, pushed Kim down and spit on her," deputy Nathan Espenlaub wrote in his affidavit. Kim Mattingly said her son was arguing about problems he encountered trying to trade in a car and her recent decision to cancel the cable TV at the ranch he was staying in, The Courier & Press reported. About 15 minutes after the service was cut, the affidavit said, Taylor Mattingly arrived at his mother's home. The two began to argue, according to The AP.
The younger Mattingly is not as gifted on the baseball diamond as his father, but did manage to play one year of Rookie ball for the Yankees organization. Don is the hitting coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers and split with Kim in 2007.
