Jodie McCallister, 39, of Racine, was charged with a misdemeanor by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office on Friday. If convicted, McCallister faces up to nine months in prison and fined up to $10,000.
According to the criminal complaint, police were called to a home in the 800 block of Jackson St. 9:45 p.m. because a girl was maced. When police arrived, the 15-year-old girl screamed hysterically and told police that she and McCallister were arguing about her cell phone when she sprayed Mace on her.
McCallister told police “she felt threatened by her daughter’s verbal statements and her close physical proximity.” McCallister’s other daughter tried to stop the two from fighting by standing between them and yelled for them to stop. McCallister told police she didn’t spray the Mace directly at the two girls and was trying to leave the house.
