Caledonia police say a 34-year-old Mount Pleasant woman is facing battery charges after she attacked a relative last week.
Amy Christensen was charged in Racine County Circuit Court Monday with two counts of misdemeanor bail jumping, and one misdemeanor count each of battery, criminal trespass, and disorderly conduct. If convicted, she faces up to three years, three months in jail and/or up to $41,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint, officers were called Thursday to a residence in the 3400 block of Taurus Drive. When police arrived, they found a woman bleeding from scratches on her face as well as swelling and bruising. She told officers that Christensen attacked her for spending time with other family members at the house.
Christensen was out on bond from a March charge of criminal trespass of dwelling, and she was ordered to not have any contact with the people who live in the house where the alleged attack Thursday took place, the complaint reads.
Online court records indicate Christensen was assigned a $500 cash bond at her initial appearance and ordered to not have any contact with the residents of the house where the incident Thursday took place. The inmate website with the Racine County Jail was unavailable Monday night.
She will next be in court on May 12 for a status conference.
