A woman has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after attacking another woman with a hot sauce bottle following a karaoke performance in Austin, Texas, according to a report by KEYE.
The news station, citing an affidavit, reports that Austin police responded to a call Thursday at La Catedral del Marisco on Oltorf Street, concerning an altercation between two women who sing karaoke at the restaurant every week. According to the report, 52-year-old Elsa Martin Garcia began to yell at a second woman, who had just finished singing, about the woman’s performance.
Then the situation, which the station reports was caught on cellphone video, escalated and Garcia hit the woman on the head with a “glass bottle of hot sauce.” According to the station, police found a broken hot sauce bottle on a table and said the victim had lacerations on her face.
