    A night of partying turns into a night at the hospital for two women involved in an after-hours altercation with two other women.

    According to a Dallas Morning News report, two unidentified women accosted Vanessa Sarmientos and Jordan Pope after all four left Wish Ultralounge in the Knox-Henderson entertainment district of Dallas.

    The two unidentified [cough] ladies, according to the report, were jealous of Pope because she had the audacity to talk with a club employee.

    When the four encountered each other about 2:15 a.m. after the club stopped serving, one of the unidentified women took off her shoe and allegedly smacked Sarmientos in the face with the heel of said shoe, inflicting damage to her eye that might disfigure the 26-year-old. She remained hospitalized as of Monday afternoon.

    The shoe-wielder and her companion then turned on Pope and beat her unconscious. She was released this morning from the hospital.

    Police are looking for the two instigators, according to the report, and it probably won’t be too hard to locate them because at least one was issued a citation because of a tiff at Wish over the club employee.

    Let’s remember, though, that stiletto heels don’t disfigure people. People disfigure people.
