Blotter: Denton police arrest woman accused of threatening to kill sister, cursing at dispatcher

A woman threatened to kill her sister and cursed out a 911 dispatcher on Wednesday before police arrested her on an assault charge.

Police initially responded to a disturbance at a north Denton home about 6 a.m. in the 4600 block of Merlot Drive. While officers were en route, dispatchers told them that the 21-year-old suspect had been cursing and making threatening comments about her sister. 

The cursing didn't stop when officers arrived, the report said. The woman also yelled loud enough to "cause the lights to the house next door and across the street to come on," the report said. 

She was taken to Denton City Jail.
