A 33-year-old woman accused of throwing chili on her sister’s car Thursday had the same substance on her shoes when police met with her, according to a police report.

The Denton Police Department was dispatched to a criminal mischief call late Thursday in the 2200 block of Longmeadow Court. A woman called 911 to report her sister was breaking the windows on her car after becoming upset with her.

When police arrived, they saw a vehicle at the residence covered in eggs and chili. The report says there was also a key scratch running down the vehicle’s driver side. The caller said it would cost $1,500 to repair her car.

According to the report, she thought she heard windows breaking but it turned out just to be the eggs and chili being thrown.

Shortly after, officers were dispatched to the 100 block of Duchess Drive for a domestic disturbance involving the suspect and a different family member. While speaking to the suspect, officers saw she had chili on her shoes consistent with what they saw on the first caller’s car.

She was arrested and charged with criminal mischief between $750 and $2,500.
