More details continue to emerge about every aspect of Orlando killer Omar Mateen’s life. These include recent revelations, reported by RadarOnline, about a 2002 domestic battery incident involving his mother, Shahla Mateen, who was arrested on December 7 after an argument that escalated into pulling her husband Sedique Mir Mateen’s hair and pinching his left arm.

Shahla Mateen, then 59, was booked into the Martin County Jail and later released on $5,000 bond, but the case was later dismissed when her husband refused to press charges.

According to the arresting officer’s affidavit, “Victim Seddique told me that both his wife and he had been arguing and when he went to brush his teeth, his wife, the above defendant, started cussing at him and pulled his hair along with pinching his left bicep.”

The officer wrote that the attack left Mr. Mateen with a “visible red mark on his left bicep consistent with being pinched.”

Although the couple’s other children were asleep during the incident, Omar wasn’t living at home.

The Afghan immigrants had been married for 20 years when the incident took place.
