Woman faces charges for violent altercation

The Register-Herald reported on October 2nd that Ashley C. Hopkins of Mercer County, aged 24, was arrested for charges of battery, destruction of property, assault, malicious wounding, and child neglect with risk of injury, when she allegedly used an ax handle to attack a man.

Bernard Allen Thomas III called 911 dispatch and claimed that Hopkins threatened to kill him and also that she damaged car windows. That officer was informed upon arrival that Hopkins allegedly used an ax to attack Thomas while he was en-route.

Three children were present, which accounts for the three charges of child neglect with risk for injury. Thomas suffered injuries to his head and arm, in addition to a potentially broken toe.

Bond is set for Hopkins at $75,000.
