Hard time might be just what the judge ordered for a porn star who allegedly tossed a dinner plate at her young daughter.

Jasmin Nadine Carte, also known by the on-screen name Holly Halston, was arrested and charged with cruelty toward a child and battery for the incident Monday night in Plantation.

Carte's husband, who is also an adult entertainer, told a Broward judge Tuesday that the porn couple had been at odds for months, which culminated in the plate toss.

Carte, 36, allegedly became so irate that she tossed the dish at her 17-year-old daughter, but missed and the ceramic plate hit her 11-year-old child, who was also at the dinner table. The couple also has a 13-year-old child who was sitting at the table.

The shattered glass cut the child's head and also cut the 17-year-old intended target. Both needed stitches for their lacerations.

It's unclear what the argument was about, but Carte and her husband are famous in the adult film industry for having a great working relationship. The pair have filmed over 150 porn scenes with each other.

The judge set a $5,500 bond for Carte and she will have to undergo a psychological evaluation.

The couple has been the target of several investigations by the Department of Children and Families in the past, the husband admitted in court.
