While the good people of Lufkin were at home showering or eating breakfast and getting ready for church, Donna Gene Hack was allegedly up to no good down at the Walmart.
Around 7 a.m. on Sunday, police received a report of Hack getting in some kind of fight. They were told that she had driven away from the scene of that dispute drunk, with a kid under 15 in the car.
And the cops were also apparently aware that she was headed for Walmart for a little five-finger discount shopping, because that was where they found her. According to an arrest affidavit, pretty much as they were walking in, Hack was walking out.
Here's a partial inventory of the goods police found on the 39-year-old's person. (Yes, that's right. This poor bedraggled woman is only 39 years old):
-- 2 men's Ultimate Fighting T-shirts
-- 2 cans of what is reportedly "Dust-Off" spray, a product familiar to devotees of the show Intervention.

-- Miscellaneous consumer goods.
Sounds like quite a party she had planned. And it's easy to see from Hack's Facebook page that this mom of the year candidate is all about the party.
Hack's criminal record includes previous convictions for evading arrest, driving while intoxicated and at least two for theft. She now faces two felonies: one for theft and the other for DWI with a child passenger. Bond for the two charges has been set at a total of $4,500.
