Loreal Brown is no Auntie Em. The San Francisco woman was arrested this week after she allegedly chased down her 18-year-old niece and hit her with a pink baseball bat.

The victim and her mother -- Brown's sister -- gave police conflicting stories about what happened that night on the sidewalk at Eddy and Pierce streets. But what investigators do know is that a fight broke out between the victim and another teen, who were arguing over $50, Captain Denis O'Leary told SF Weekly.

The victim managed to wrangle the cash from her opponent, but the fighting wasn't over.

For a reason still unclear to police, Brown started chasing her niece, who was now $50 richer, and beating her with a baseball bat. The victim claims her aunt broke her arm, but her mother is denying that, O'Leary says.

Brown was arrested on suspicion of assault with a pink and deadly weapon.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
