Mom, We Love You and All...

...but we done told you to leave our beer alone.

A brother and sister are in the St. Clair County Jail charged with beating up their mother over beer.

Brittany M. Ferguson, 20, and Lindell K. Ferguson, 18, both of Fayetteville, have each been charged with multiple counts of domestic battery in connection with an incident that left their 42-year-old mother bleeding, scratched and bruised in their Fayetteville home, according to St. Clair County Sheriff's Sgt. Mike Hundelt.

The siblings were charged last week by St. Clair County State's Attorney Brendan Kelly.

According to police, they received a domestic disturbance call around 7:40 p.m. Nov. 22 in the 2100 block of South First Street in Fayetteville. When police arrived, Lindell and Brittany Ferguson had already fled the home. Their mother, whose name was not released by police, was bleeding profusely from her nose, her left eye was black and swollen and she had numerous scratches on her arm. She refused medical attention. Another adult, a 47-year-old man who also lives in the home but is not believed to be the father of Brittany and Lindell, had also been battered.

The victim told police the disturbance started because she threw out several cans of Bud Light beer from her refrigerator because her daughter, Brittany, was not of legal drinking age. The disposal of the beer angered Brittany, according to police, and she attacked her mother. Lindell joined his sister in the beating of their mother.

Blood may be thicker than water, but it ain't thicker than Bud Light.
