Fan cuts brother during argument in Rancho Cordova

A woman was taken into custody for allegedly cutting her brother with an electric fan.

A Sacramento County Sheriff's Department watch summary said about 6:40 p.m. Thursday police were called to Terra Loma Drive in Rancho Cordova.

When authorities arrived, they discovered that Tabitha Dean, 43, and her 41-year old brother had both been drinking when an argument began.

Some time during the argument, Dean allegedly struck her brother on his legs with a running electric fan, producing a large laceration, according to the watch summary.

She was taken into custody but has since been released from Sacramento County Jail.
