Florida Layabout, 21, Gets Mom Arrested After She Slaps Him In Face For Being Rude Freeloader

According to Sergio Irey’s mother, the 21-year-old Florida man is unemployed, lives at home rent-free, does not help out with household chores or bills, has allowed his college grades to plummet, and “spends all his time with a girl who is a bad influence on him.”

Sergio’s loafing does not sit well with Rocio Irey, 45, who has explained to her son that he “needs to get his life on track, straighten up, get a job and start helping around the house,” police report.

Police report this because last night Rocio and Sergio (pictured at right in happier times) were arguing about his reported layabout ways in their Sarasota home.

Rocio told a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office deputy that she became angered at her son “because he was not listening to her, he was back talking to her and he was being disrespectful by interrupting her and ignoring her.”

So a frustrated Rocio slapped her son across the face twice, explaining, “I slapped him because he was being disrespectful to me, I’m his mother.”

Sergio--who later acknowledged his churlish behavior--responded by calling the cops on his mother because he “became scared of her and didn’t know what else to do.”

Though Sergio was uninjured by the slaps, Florida state law required that “the aggressor be arrested” for domestic battery. So Rocio, seen in the adjacent mug shot, was handcuffed and transported to the county jail, where she remains locked up.

With his mom behind bars, it is unclear who will make Sergio’s bed (or his lunch) today.
