Man holds his mother hostage for not ironing his clothes

In the latest of a string of unusual stories we're publishing this morning, we can report that a 29 year old man from Georgia (the state) held his mother hostage because he expected her to iron his clothes - she refused.

He then proceeded to pull a gun and held his mother hostage for several hours, according to a report filed under the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The man, Robert Edward Tyrrell Jr., remained in jail Thursday without bond. He faces jail and false imprisonment as a result of his maternally targeted hold-up.

"He wanted her to do some ironing, and when she said ‘no,' they got into an argument," Griffith said. "He told her ‘ironing is woman's work.' " Tyrrell lives with his parents.
