PALM COAST, FL (1010 WINS) -- Cops are investigating an attack on a mother and her adult son at a target in central Florida, over a collectible figurine.

For those wondering, the figurine was a 'Funko Pop' of the Twinkie mascot 'Twinkie the Kid' which is apparently hard to get -- they sell for between $100 and $150 on eBay.

Police in Palm Coast say 34-year-old Charles Porter became so outraged that the pair was able to get the item over him that he followed them out of the store, attacked them, and tried to smash the doll.

The cops arrived and charged Potter with battery and burglary.
