Port Allen Woman Accused of Setting Victim’s Wig on Fire During Fight
Oh Baton Rouge, you're winning the internet today.
Police were called out yesterday to a residence in the 5400 block of Clayton Street for a fight involving two women.
Once at the scene, authorities found 34-year-old Sherita Griffin of Port Allen and another suspect. The fight reportedly started as a verbal altercation and things escalated after Griffin hit the other woman.
At that point, the second woman pulled out a knife and stabbed Griffin.
The retaliation from Griffin? She proceeded to pull the woman's wig off her head and set it on fire!
Oh, and she then tried attacking the woman with a shovel. The second woman was then able to lock herself in her vehicle for safety.
Police have charged Griffin with aggravated assault, simple arson, and disturbing the peace. There's no word if the other woman arrested too.
