(Newser) – We're guessing Robert Golba's mother didn't spend Sunday thanking her lucky stars that she is mom to this 55-year-old. The 81-year-old woman broke her hip in three places after being pinned to her kitchen floor for hours on Thursday—after her intoxicated son fell on her while the two were arguing and proceeded to pass out, reports the Chicago Tribune. As CBS Chicago reports, their legs apparently became intertwined, but the woman was eventually able to alert family members, who called police. They arrived around 4pm to find Golba unconscious ... temporarily.

He was "extremely combative with responding officers and had to be restrained," according to Riverside police. Golba, who had been living with his mom, had an order of protection that barred him from entering the home if he had used alcohol or drugs; he's been charged with one count of felony violation of order of protection. Opposing Views notes that Golba describes himself on Facebook as a self-employed musician/singer/songwriter/recording artist. (Read more weird crimes stories.)
