Mother and daughter's fight over cleanliness leads to charges
SALISBURY — A Salisbury home’s cleanliness started a fight between a mother and daughter on Tuesday and resulted in drug charges.
According to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, Amy Dickquist and her daughter, Victoria Dickquist, were charged with assaulting each other after deputies say the fight started because Amy did not like the way her daughter cleaned the house.
Officers reported that the 44-year-old mom was angry “over the mess made by Victoria’s friends” at her 135 Sable Road home and that Amy Dickquist attempted to get her daughter’s car keys from her to stop her from leaving.
In the struggle, 18-year-old Victoria Dickquist “raked” the keys across her mother’s lip, according to the report. Authorities said Amy Dickquist grabbed her daughter by the head and shoved her down, hitting a nearby bathtub.
During the incident, the report said, Victoria’s Dickquist’s 2-year-old son was present.
Victoria Dickquist told deputies that her mother “is a perfectionist and did not like the way she cleaned the house,” the report said.
A DSS worker allowed Victoria Dickquist’s grandparents to take custody of the child while mother and daughter were transported to the Magistrate’s Office.
Once there, deputies said they found a pill bottle in Amy Dickquist’s purse containing klonopin, ibuprofen, Aleve and lisdexamfetamine. Klonopin is typically used to control types of seizures. Lisdexamfetamine is an attention deficit hyperactivity disorder medication.
Amy Dickquist was charged with three counts of simple possession of controlled prescription pills and simple assault. Victoria Dickquist was also charged with simple assault.
They were both released after posting a $500 bond.
