Good I hope she gets some jail time. Psycho, low class behavior shouldn't be tolerated. But sadly this is CA and we have overcrowding, so most likely nothing will happen. At least the victim can sue the crap out of her in civil court!

Girl got herself into trouble and Lord knows no one wants a felony. If she has a good attorney and a little luck, hopefully she can get it reduced or pleaded down to misdemeanor assault. It's not like she beat the crap out of someone or something like that. I don't think she has ever been in trouble, so I am on her side. Good people can do stupid things sometimes. Good luck to you, Crystal. You live and you learn. You learn to first live life righteously, and second to live it defensively. Defensive meaning, don't do anything that could hurt yourself, like assaulting someone else, amongst other things.

A "deadly weapon" needs to be just that. A deadly weapon. Let's examine that. It needs to be a weapon that is deadly. It needs to be an object that is designed to be a weapon and is designed to be deadly. Or at the very least, the user has to have the intent of it being a weapon. A gun, knife, bomb, or maybe even defense club or nunchucks can be considered deadly weapons. A bar glass is not a weapon. That is not its intent or design. It is no more of a deadly weapon than getting into an argument with someone at home and pulling down the vertical blinds and shoving that in their face. There was a case in Tampa a couple of years ago where someone was charged with assault with a deadly weapon because they threw water balloons at a car windshield. It is ridiculous. Enough. This is simple assault. The intent of Crystal matters, and I highly doubt she intended for the glass to be a "weapon".

That's what you get for being a bimbo....She could have got the bouncer or door security to get the other woman out of her face, but since she chose to throw a glass at her, then i have no mercy for idiots. Next time tell the bar attendant or the manager or door security, if someone is bothering you.

Crystal Hunt Needs To Learn Reality from TV. On Soaps you can say I meant to throw water and get away with it, but is she a big enough actor to get away with it, I don't think so.

The world is disgusting    

She deserves a long time in jail for that kind of assault. She wanted to disfigure another woman's face because she can't control her emotions. This "woman" makes money off of her looks, definitely not her talent and she was willing to damage another woman's beauty over her feelings being hurt. I hope she ages badly and rapidly.

Yeah, 'cause I always have control of my temper but I have to throw water on people and the glass just slips out of my hand.


Sounds like the kind of argument that some alcoholics (not the intelligent ones) make.
