(Newser) – A Florida granny was busted for domestic violence after slapping her granddaughter for cursing out the old woman. "I am so shocked after everything that happened. I wanted to crawl into a hole and die," said Theresa Collier, 73. Cops collared Collier after her granddaughter Felicia, 18, called in a complaint. Felicia, who was expelled from her high school for cursing out a nun, was working on a computer at Collier's home when she became verbally abusive.

"She didn't want to listen to me. She kept saying 'F-you.' I had enough of it. I was so upset that I slapped her across the face. She grabbed my wrists and I couldn't move," said Collier. A police official said Largo has a mandatory arrest policy in domestic violence complaints if responding officers find indications of battery. Collier was released from jail after Felicia signed a form waving the option to prosecute, ABC News reports.
