Austin, TX – A woman is in jail after police say she popped another woman’s eyeball out of her head during a fight Saturday afternoon.
According to police, 20-year-old Talicia Morrison got into a fight with Cherry Webster and ended up grabbing Webster’s face, grabbing her eye and then “dug her fingers up in there,” which caused Webster’s eyeball to come out of the socket.
By time officers arrived on the scene, Morrison had already left, but Webster was there screaming in pain with her eyeball hanging out. So far, there is no word on what the fight was about, but the women are acquaintances, according to Austin Police Officer Veneza Bremner. “I’m sure it was some sort of drama that was occurring,” he said.
Webster was taken to the hospital where doctors were able to pop her eyeball back into her head, but the extent of the damage remains to be seen. (*snicker*)
When police brought Morrison in for questioning, she admitted to being involved in the fight and displayed a couple of broken fingernails. Initially she said she wasn’t aware of the damage she had done to Webster, but then later stated she might have used her fingernail to pop out the woman’s eyeball.
Talicia Morrison was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Her bond has been set at $70,000. “Anything can be used as a weapon,” said Bremner. “In this case it was her hand — it was her fingernail.”
At this time, police do not intend to charge Webster with anything, probably sympathizing with her being able to see her own face without looking into a mirror.
