Weekend Baptismal Celebration Goes South When Drunken Party-Crasher Starts Talking Shit

Categories: Crime

When it comes to baptisms, it's always best to stick to water.
The party at 9807 Laneyvale Ave. in Pleasant Grove on Saturday evening started pleasantly enough. It was, after all, a celebration of the holy sacrament of baptism that had been performed earlier in the day. Then, Noel Lorenzo Hernandez crashed the party.

Hernandez, a 21-year-old Irving resident, hadn't technically been invited. It was a friends-and-family thing, but the the hostess works with his mother and suggested that she stop by. Little did she know that her coworker would bring her adult children, or that they would show up to the party already noticeably wasted.

Nor did they stop drinking after they arrived. At some point, the hostess' husband pulled her aside and complained that the mother, who was outside in the front, wasn't keeping an eye on her children, who were inside guzzling alcohol.

So, things were a bit tense by the time Hernandez, who had spent the evening taking pulls from a bottle of Crown Royal, began "trash guy talking," as the hostess later described it to police. He was also vomiting at this point, but he and his siblings ignored the pleas of his mother, and the rest of the party goers, to leave.

The situation finally boiled over around midnight. The host, his brother-in-law, and several others attacked Hernandez as he walked outside, wailing on him until he lost consciousness, though the relative influence of head trauma and alcohol on his condition is unclear. Paramedics were told he'd also been hit with a beer bottle.

Hernandez was taken to Baylor Hospital, where he was treated. The cops interviewed several people at the party but made no arrests. Their report doesn't say whether this was because they couldn't find the suspects, they lacked sufficient evidence, or they simply thought that, after crashing a baptismal party with a bottle of Crown Royal, Hernandez kind of had it coming.

its sad how people lie about what happend just to make them selves the victims. When in reality the truth should of been said. Shit didnt go down like that. But i guess if it makes you feel better about yourself and innocent more power to you. Justic will be served and at the end will see if the story still turns out the way it was said. The truth always comes out at the end. If your party was so holy and sacred why was there alcohol and liquor there and ended up being an adult party after all. Thats just an excuse we all use or call it now these days. You never know what happens thses days. You cant trust no one these days. you just have to be more careful these days when someone gives you an invitation to a party but yet not knowing that its actually an open invitation for your family members to get him drunk and then get beat by 10 guys. Thats yas way of giving thanks to god for a baptism.


At least it wasn't Maple Crown Royal--- that stuff is the worst (unless used on pancakes).


I think this article should be referred to Gustavo Arellano.....


Just another night in Peasant Grove.

I've found that as a class, Crown Royal drinkers have none.

Once again, Pleasant Grove fails to live up to the name.


Crown Royal, blood and vomit - just another Pleasant Grove baptism. What we really want to know is who paid the guy's hospital bill.


@Montemalone Never underestimate Pleasant Grove's astounding capacity to garner bad press.
