On August 31, 2021, at approximately 5:38 p.m., troopers responded to the 34000 block of Pin Oak Drive for a reported assault. The investigation determined Tara Tisher and the 53-year-old female victim were having a verbal argument inside the residence about a cellphone. The two females agreed Tisher would give the victim the cellphone in the front porch area of the home. Once on the porch, Tisher pulled out a screwdriver and cut the victims’ hand before pointing the screwdriver at her.
