Jennifer Rae White was arrested in Killeen on Sunday, after allegedly taking a hammer and using it to beat her neighbor’s car windows and front door. According to the Killeen Daily Herald, an arrest affidavit stated that police responded to the 700 block of Stetson Avenue in Killeen because White was reportedly 'punching out the front windows' of a residence there.

Trouble in a Killeen Neighborhood

This doesn't appear to be an isolated incident. A comment on the Killeen Daily Herald page mentioned that police had responded to previous complaints about White.

She was not just lightly tapping around, either. According to KPD, the front windows of the neighbor’s home had been 'shattered,' the front door had 'damage consistent with strikes from a hammer,' and all windows along with side mirrors on a vehicle were destroyed.

According to the affidavit, White was seen 'covered in blood and bleeding profusely', which makes sense if she was breaking glass with a hammer. Witnesses said that White had been yelling and screaming near the house earlier in the day, but no one could understand what she was saying.

White was charged with burglary of habitation with intent to commit assault, which is a first-degree felony. She was booked into the Bell County Jail, and her bond was set at $100,000.

Bet You Didn't Know: 10 Bizarre Texas Laws Still on the Books

Many states still have strange laws on the books that aren’t enforced or taken seriously anymore, and Texas is no exception.

Most of these laws are just funny now, but at one time, there was a valid (or at least somewhat valid) reason for them to exist.

Texas has plenty of strange rules and regulations that you could technically be prosecuted for if you violate them, since they've never been amended. Some of these are only for specific cities and not state-wide, but all of them are pretty odd!

Let's take a look at 10 of the weirdest ones in the Lone Star State.
