Antlers woman accused of attacking maid's eye

Tommie Sue Cofflet

McALESTER, Okla. (AP) - An Antlers woman is charged with attempted maiming in which prosecutors say she tried to pull out the eye of a motel maid in McAlester.

Prosecutors say 26-year-old Tommie Sue Cofflet attacked the Super 8 Motel maid Feb. 21 after the group she was with stayed past checkout time and was asked to leave.

Court documents say Cofflet held the maid in a headlock and began digging at her eye and caused severe trauma to the left eyeball.

Assistant Pittsburg County District Attorney Mike Miller says it isn't known yet if the maid will lose sight in the eye. He says if her vision is lost the charge may be upgraded to maiming.

Cofflet is in the Pittsburg County jail on $40,000 bond.

Kimberly Adams, her attorney, says she was just assigned to the case and can't comment.

    fighting,drinking,drugs, that is what the young children of today are learning. and doing ,parents let their children dress today with no self respect,advertising themself,they learn from home,peers, tv,internet.violence and crime, is what the children see,and hear. people wake up and take control of what your children are learning and what you are submitting to them , teach them self respect , parents turn off the violence and drugs ,sexual advertising shown on tv , Our world is what we the people have made it!!!!! and tell we the people take a stand ,this is what our children are learning. God would be so ashamed of what we have made this world to be.. the children of today will rule the world of tomorrow. what they learn today will reflect in their lives!!!

    Top ten excuses for Tommie sue gouging out the maid's eye .......... 10. "she had a crazy eye"........ 9 "we did not see eye to eye"....... 8 "The maid worked for the C eye A"...... 7 "I did not want the maid to keep an eye on me"...... 6 "I was not going to keep the eye, I was going to give it back"....... 5 "the maid had something in her eye and I was just removing it"......... 4 "the maid was giving me the evil eye, so I took it"...... 3. "I thought it was the CBS logo in her head"....... 2. "people are out to get me, I needed another eye to see behind me"......... 1. "She called me Conan O'Brien"

    Why is she smiling so big?? She was probably hiding the meth lab they hadn't finished packing up when the maid interrupted. That woman was just doing her dang job! Crackhead rednecks.
