NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- A Nashville mother was forced to call police after her son allegedly attacked her because she was moving too slow.

According to the police affidavit, Antijuan Armstrong was helping his mother move some things from a friend's apartment on Dellway Villa Road. Upset about the speed she was moving, Armstrong backed up his truck to a dumpster and unloaded her dresser from the back by throwing it onto the asphalt. He then "hopped out of the truck and began kicking the dresser towards the dumpster destroying" it according to the affidavit.

Armstrong left the scene but returned about three hours later with his girlfriend Nikkira Perry and the two allegedly started to beat the man's mother. "They drug her up and down the parking lot, striking her multiple times, busting her lip and causing abrasions to her knees and elbows" the affidavit states.

The pair drove off after the assault but were later arrested by police. Armstrong has two prior convictions for domestic assault and bodily injury from 2014.
