Sometimes, insulting someone's mother is not a funny joke. Witnesses say that Ludvig Gharabeigi, 32, learned this the hard way, when his ex-girlfriend allegedly used her SUV to hit him repeatedly in retaliation for his reported mockery of her mom. According to KTLA, Tangik Khodaverdian, 25, was arrested after she reportedly drove her SUV into Gharabeigi twice in a Smart and Final parking lot on Saturday. Those who claim to have seen the incident say she was going about 30 miles an hour when she pinned him against a wall with her car, and then backed into him a second time after seeing that he was taking a picture of her license plate.

Somehow, he was not badly hurt, and was treated for non-life threatening injuries at L.A. County USC Medical Center.

Khodaverdian was later arrested at her home on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, after Gharabeigi's handprints were found on the bumper and hood of her car. She told authorities that she backed into him because she was afraid of him, but later added that she was mad at him for insulting her mother.
