A Ringgold woman was arrested following a violent episode, in which she allegedly attacked a person, her third such arrest so far this year, police say.
According to the Catoosa County Sheriff’s Office:
Christian Morgan Mencer-Smith, 22, of Rolling Hills Drive, was arrested on May 2 on charges of battery and criminal trespassing. She has been released from jail on bond.
Just after midnight on Monday, May 2, deputies were dispatched to the Rolling Hills subdivision after a man reported being assaulted by Mencer-Smith during a heated argument.
The man claimed Mencer-Smith got mad, broke a phone, and then attacked him by clawing him in the face and kicking him in the groin, reports show.
“I asked Ms. Mencer-Smith what had occurred, to which she replied, ‘I don’t know’,” deputy Carmi Smith said.
She also claimed to not know how the phone got broken, and when she asked about scratching the man’s face she replied, “that didn’t happen.”
Monday’s arrest was the third time this year Mencer-Smith has been charged with a violent crime against another person.
She allegedly attacked a 56-year-old woman during an argument on March 6, after witnesses said she was too intoxicated to take care of her children.
During that arrest, in which she was charged simple assault, criminal trespassing, and obstruction of officers; she also became combative with police while being placed in the patrol car.
Seven weeks prior to that, on Jan. 21, she was arrested in Fort Oglethorpe on a number of charges after she allegedly attacked hospital workers while being treated at Hutcheson Medical Center.
She was charged with battery, simple battery, two counts of obstruction of officers, and disorderly conduct during that Jan. 14 incident, in which she allegedly punched walls and wrestled a nurse to the ground while pulling out some of her hair.
During that incident police stated she likewise threw a fit and was combative when being placed in the patrol car and tried to bite an officer’s hand.
