Lufkin, Texas (KETK) — Authorities are investigating a bizarre incident in Lufkin. A woman is accused of slapping a relative in the face with a catfish over the weekend.
According to the Lufkin Police Department, on Sunday at 2:20 a.m., officers were dispatched to the 400 block of Davis Street on reports of a disturbance. When police got there, they spoke with three different people who gave authorities their statements.
One of the women present said she put a dead fish in her sister-in-law's face and her brother began assaulting her. She also had red marks on her face.
The brother claimed his sister slapped his wife with the dead fish and told her to leave, and then she began assaulting him.
Though this incident had little to do with the brother, officers discovered later that morning that he had a warrant for a different incident and arrested him.
Due to conflicting stories and the threat of further violence gone with the brother's arrest, no charges were filed at the time. The investigation has been turned over to detectives
