An argument over a cell phone led to a stabbing and several criminal charges filed Wednesday against a 16-year-old Kenosha girl.

Shamell G. Green is charged as an adult with a felony count of substantial battery with the use of a dangerous weapon, two counts of bail jumping and a misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct with the use of a dangerous weapon.

The battery charge carries a fine of $10,000 and three years, six months in prison, while the bail-jumping charges each carry a fine of $10,000 and six years in prison. The misdemeanor carries a fine of $1,000 and 90 days in jail.

Green also was charged Wednesday with a felony count of battery by a prisoner and a misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct for an incident in January while she was being held at the Racine County Juvenile Detention Center.

The felony carries a fine of $10,000 and six years in prison.

According to the criminal complaint in the first case:

Police investigated a stabbing that took place May 20 in Racine. They spoke to the victim, who stated he was stabbed by the defendant after an argument over a cell phone, which was left at his residence by another person. The victim stated that person attacked him and that Green stabbed him in the leg with a box cutter that required seven stitches.

Green first told police the victim may have stabbed himself, then admitted she stabbed him, but in defense of the other person involved.

In the other criminal complaint filed Wednesday:

Police spoke to a detention worker at the juvenile center, who stated that Green intentionally struck him with a closed right fist on the left side of his face as employees tried to escort her to her assigned cell.

The employee further stated that Green continued to be combative and repeatedly kicked, scratched and spit at workers. During that incident, the worker was scratched on the back of his right hand by the defendant.

Green will be back in court for a preliminary hearing May 30 at 9 a.m.
