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.
