A North Naples teen is accused of attacking her mother after she was caught cleaning out a marijuana pipe in the bathroom.
The teen’s mom told Collier County sheriff’s deputies this wasn’t the first time her daughter became violent with her.
Brittany Matyisin, 18, of the 16100 block of Caldera Lane, was arrested Wednesday in the 700 block of Vanderbilt Beach Road.
Matyisin’s mother said that on April 14, while moving into her new home, she found her daughter in the bathroom cleaning a marijuana smoking pipe with her friend, according to an arrest report.
Matyisin’s mother told deputies she tried to take the pipe from her daughter’s hands but she was then struck in the nose, causing it to bleed.
The teen’s mother also said that, Monday night, she asked her daughter to get off the phone, but she refused so she then told her that was going to disconnect her phone’s service, according to reports. Matyisin’s mother told deputies that her daughter then became angry, grabbed her arm and scratched her.
According to reports, after Matyisin’s mother disconnected her daughter’s phone, Matyisin became enraged, took a large kitchen knife, ran over to where her mother was sitting and held it over her head saying she was going to stab her.
Matyisin’s mother told deputies she sat very still but her daughter continued to taunt her with the knife. Matyisin eventually began threatening to stab herself in the leg before putting down the knife, reports said.
Matyisin is facing a charge of domestic battery.
