A Florida woman was arrested Saturday for allegedly shooting at her 46-year-old son from her car while he pedaled away from her on a bicycle after an argument.

Priscilla Ann Ethridge, 66, of Panama City Beach, Florida, chased her son with her car after she accused him of stealing her cellphone on Saturday night, reported the Daily Mail.

“I’ll be damned if I let him have the last word,” Ethridge said before she got in her car, her nephew told police. She rode up to her son while he was on a bicycle, rolled down her window and fired at him with a .22 caliber handgun, police said.

Ethridge missed, but the bullet came “very close,” according to a police report.

The cellphone was found in the home they shared, reported the New York Post.
