Roommate Hit With Metal Towel Rack

CORPUS CHRISTI - A fight over a messy apartment got really messy as one woman is accused of hitting her roommate with a metal towel rack, then stopping to throw up in the middle of the fight.

The victim was able to run out of her Schanen Drive apartment, but she was a wandering around and disoriented when police found her.

She said 27-year-old Yvonne Howard started punching her and also pulled a metal towel rack off the wall to use as a weapon.

The roommate said she was only able to escape when Howard stopped to vomit. The victim was taken to the hospital to be treated for her injuries.

Howard doesn't look so good in her mugshot either. She has heavy bruising around her neck and a nasty bump on the forehead. She's facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and also had an outstanding felony warrant.
