Texas Woman arrested for hitting girl over ice cream

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A woman has been arrested for allegedly hitting a 10-year-old girl who refused to share ice cream with her daughter.

The San Antonio Express-News reported  Sunday that the 10 year old bought ice cream Saturday and began playing with nearby children.

A 4 year old asked the older girl for her ice cream, and when she refused, tried to grab it. Police say the 10 year old then slapped her hand away.

The older girl began walking home but the mother of the 4 year old, Talysa Herron, approached and hit her in the face. She then followed her home in her car.

The 10-year-old's mother, Cyndi Lafontaine, confronted Herron but was herself punched and beaten until police were called.

Herron has been charged with injury to a child.
