One South Florida son's behavior toward his mom probably wouldn't be described as good to the last drop.

Brandon Scott Quintana, 19, was taken to jail after he allegedly got physical with his mom because she drank his Starbucks iced coffee, reported.

The Port St. Lucie resident is charged with battery for the incident earlier in the week, just days before Mother's Day.

Starbucks is delicious, but not "so good, it will make you wanna slap yo mama" delicious. That didn't stop Quintana from crying over spilled coffee.

The spat started when Quintana's 43-year-old mom woke up from a nap with a parched throat. She saw her son's Starbucks in the refrigerator and probably thought it was safe to drink.

After all, she did give birth to the kid.


When Quintana got home, he was looking for his chilled treat. When he couldn't find it, he threw a temper tantrum, police said.

Quintana allegedly told police he was "pissed off because he spent every cent on that coffee" and that what his mom did amounted to stealing.

Cops didn't quite see it that way.

Quintana's mom said she tried to solve the problem with her son by offering a 2-liter soda as a replacement for the Starbucks, but he pushed her into a computer chair.
