LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Lufkin Police officers arrested a 54-year-old woman Sunday in connection to allegations that she scratched her husband's eye after he wouldn't let her drink any more beer.
Bell Zora Montgomery, of Lufkin, was booked into the Angelina County Jail on a misdemeanor assault-family violence charge Sunday. She was released after she posted a bail amount of $500.
According to the Lufkin Police Department's daily activity report, the incident happened at a home in the 1900 block of Wood Avenue at about 6:35 p.m. Sunday. The report said Montgomery was arrested for assaulting her husband after he told her she couldn't have any more beer because she had been drinking all day.
Montgomery allegedly threw her plate of food on the ground and put her hands on her husband's face, scratching his eye in the process. The man told the responding Lufkin PD officers that he pushed her to get her away from his face.
Although Montgomery admitted to getting angry about the beer, she denied the assault, the report stated.
"She admitted that in addition to drinking, she had also recently smoked crack cocaine," the report stated.
