A Houston woman was taken into custody by Bryan police on Tuesday after allegedly assaulting a pregnant woman with a tire iron in an argument over chicken.
According to TheEagle.com, authorities responded to a call at a residence. A 34-year-old woman, who is pregnant with twins, told them that she and her godmother, Gwendolyn Faye Diggles, 58, had gone to the grocery store and gotten in an argument.
According to the victim, Diggles left her at the grocery store. When she got home Diggles allegedly took a package of chicken and attempted to leave. The victim tried to take the chicken back and Diggles allegedly strangled her for 15 seconds. She followed Diggles out to the car and took the chicken out of the front seat, at which point Diggles allegedly took a tire iron and swung at the victim’s head.
According to police records, Diggles was taken into Brazos County Jail and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison. She is being held on $10,000 bond.
