(CBS/WSPA) UNION, S.C. - Police say a 53-year-old South Carolina woman beat her nephew on Tuesday after he used the toilet paper she bought.

Are times really that tough?

CBS affiliate WSPA reports that Linda Kay Johnson was charged with assault and battery for attacking her nephew, 27-year-old Johnathan West.

According to police, West said he was lying on his bed when Johnson came into the room and threw a glass ashtray at him. It missed, but then his aunt grabbed him and pushed him out of his room, hitting him in the face and pulling his hair.

Authorities said he had red marks to his chest and an injury above his eye.

When police arrived at the home, Johnson was sitting on the front porch. She said, "Just take me to jail, I'm ready."  She was taken to the Union County jail.

We're guessing Aunt Linda may have issues that transcend toilet paper.
