ALGOA, Texas — A man has been accused of assaulting his sister with a piece of pie, KPRC Local 2 reported.
Galveston County sheriff’s deputies said a family gathered for Thanksgiving dinner at a home in the 16700 block of Fir Road in Algoa.
A man, 26, and his sister, 23, got into an argument, investigators said. Their mother tried to stop the argument, but it escalated and the man threatened his sister with the pie.
Detectives said the man shoved a piece of pie that had just been microwaved into his sister’s face.
The woman went to an Alvin-area hospital for treatment of first- and second-degree burns to the left side of her face and neck.
Officials said the woman asked for the case to be dropped, but Texas law requires that the state continue with prosecution of cases of family violence.
Assault charges were pending against the brother.
