GAMALIEL, AR (KAIT) – A day of fishing ends with one woman in the hospital and another in jail.

On Thursday Baxter County Sheriff's deputies were called to a fight in Gamaliel.

According to investigators, 30-year-old Cristal Carson and three others had been fishing on the bank when she and a woman got into an argument.  Witnesses say Carson picked up a rock and hit the victim several times in the head and face before a man broke up the fight.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment.  Carson was arrested and charged with first-degree battery.  Her bond was set at $25,000 pending arraignment on May 5.
