Halloween Party Plans Send Sister to Jail for Allegedly Slashing Sister

A 17-year-old Lufkin woman was jailed Friday night after a fracas erupted when her father forbade her from attending a Halloween party, police said.

According to KTRE, Hernandez responded to dad's attempt at disciplining her by going to the kitchen and retrieving a knife.

Her sister tried to disarm and wound up with a slashed hand for her troubles. (The injury was not life-threatening.)

Judging by her mugshot, Hernandez already had a lot invested in attending that party, though we are uncertain if her pumpkin-like garb is Angelina County-issued attire or part of a seasonal costume. At any rate, she now faces a charge of aggravated assault, a second-degree felony punishable by two to 20 years behind bars.

She is currently free on a $10,000 bond.
