AUSTIN -- Police have arrested a woman for digging another woman's eye out of the socket during an altercation.

An affidavit released by police states that officers were called to a home on March 16 to find Cherry Webster screaming in pain with her eyeball out of the socket.

Witnesses told officers that they saw Talicia Kiavonna Morrison, 20, leave the scene and gave a description of her car. Police soon found Morrison and brought her in for questioning.

Morrison told police that she and Webster got into a fight earlier that day. She admitted that she must have dug Webster's eyeball out with her fingernail. Several of her nails were broken during the fight.

According to the affidavit, Webster told police that Morrison "grabbed her face, grabbed her eye and 'dug her fingers up in there' which caused the eyeball to come out of its socket."

Webster was taken to a local hospital and is said to be in good condition.

Morrison was arrested and charged with second degree felony of aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury. Her bail has been set at $70,000.
