Taylor Mattingly, the 24-year-old son of Kim Mattingly (pictured) and former Yankee great Don Mattingly, was arrested by police in Evansville, Indiana on Tuesday after he spit on his mother and pushed her to the ground. I thought this sort of thing only happened during the holidays.
Taylor also took out his anger on Kim’s furniture: he admitted to shattering a patio table, breaking a door and a window and throwing other furniture against the walls of Kim’s pool house.
Kim Mattingly told cops that Taylor’s fuse was lit in part when she canceled cable TV service at the ranch where he was staying. via.
Don and Kim filed for divorce in November of 2007, so Taylor’s stuck in Indiana while Daddy gets to be the Dodgers hitting coach in LA and hang out with Manny Ramirez and snort cocaine of the crevices of whomever he pleases. That family must be going through so much pain. I guess what I’m trying to say is, give the kid his cable back, and the two of you can bask in the healing power of television.
