Another day, another incredibly bizarre crime story out of Lincoln County. Earlier this week, we told you about a woman who was accused of screaming at children while wearing a ski mask and holding a chainsaw. Now, we have for you the story of a strange family fight that prompted cops to take an allegedly violent mom and daughter away in handcuffs.

The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office reported yesterday that officers respond to a house on County View Drive in Foley for a "domestic dispute between siblings." When they got there, a male victim said that his 23-year-old sister, Geneva May Faust, had gotten into a fight with him about moving her car in the driveway and "access to the home's shower."

During the confrontation, the brother told cops, she kicked and punched him. And bit him.

Presumably not interested in being bitten and kicked, the brother reportedly tried to leave the residence at this point.

But his sister, the sheriff's office says, threw a pair of large gardening shears at him and then struck him with an aluminum crutch.

When cops arrived, the brother was bleeding from multiple wounds in his arm and had a swollen left eye.

Meanwhile, their mother, 54-year-old Christine May Dunlap, was apparently was not too pleased with the deputy who came to break up the fight.

As a deputy was arresting Faust for second-degree domestic assault -- after she admitted to throwing shears at her brother -- the officer asked her mother to get her daughter's shoes, the sheriff's office say.

Dunlap allegedly came back with the shoes, but didn't hand them over and instead cursed at the deputies and demanded that they leave.

Then, cops say, she threw the shoes at the arresting deputy, hitting the officer in the face and chest.

She allegedly tried to punch this officer, too.

Dunlap was swiftly arrested for assault on a law enforcement officer.

Sheriff John Cottle says in a statement, "In cases like this, where families cannot handle their interpersonal differences, arguments can quickly turn violent and explosive. My deputies are specially trained to handle volatile situations to ensure their personal safety and those of the community."

The mother and daughter are both currently being held in Lincoln County jail with Faust on a $20,000 cash only bond and her mother on a $50,000 cash only bond.

Aside from the obvious white trashiness of the whole situation, you also have to think about this.... how big of a bitch do you have to be to call the cops on your sister?  Imagine that 911 call from a man..."My sister is beating me up, come save me".   If my sister could somehow beat me up, I think I'd just take the beating because I'd be too embarassed to call the cops and tell them it happened!

The mom is what the daughter will look like in 25 years.

@max_in_missouri So you say only women suffer from domestic abuse? This brother did the right thing by not retaliating and calling the cops
