Police: Woman, 28, Busted For Battering Her Mother With Grits

The female victim, 64, was covered in grits when officers arrived, according to a police report.

An argument over kitchen usage turned violent Monday afternoon when Jakiela Mobley, 28, “grabbed some of the grits” being cooked by her mother and “hit her in the face” with the porridge.

The victim, Ila Johnson, told Florida cops that Mobley had been drinking and using drugs, and that “when she does this, she becomes aggressive towards her.” Johnson added that she did not want to contact police since “the matter was juvenile at its core.”

A sheriff’s deputy who responded to the Ocala residence noted that he “observed dried grits on the side of the victim’s face,” as well as matching grits on the kitchen counter and in a nearby dustpan.

Pictured above, Mobley was arrested for battery, a misdemeanor, and booked into the Marion County jail, where she is being held in lieu of $2500 bond.

Mobley, who told police she had been sleeping on the streets, “has multiple battery arrests but does not have any convictions.”
