A Caledonia woman was charged after she stuck her boyfriend on the head while he was holding a baby, and then fled the area because she was out on bail for disorderly conduct, according the Racine County District Attorney’s Office.
Kelly Bradford, 28, was charged with possession of marijuana – party to a crime, possession of drug paraphernalia – party to a crime, and three counts of bail jumping.
If convicted, Bradford faces up to two years 10 months in prison and fined up to $31,500.
According to the criminal complaint, officers from the Caledonia Police Department responded to a report of a man being assaulted by a woman at 12:09 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 25 in the parking lot of an apartment complex at 426 3 Mile Road.
Finding blood on a car parked in the parking lot, officers went into the apartment and found a door unlocked and slightly open. The lock to the door had been broken, fingernails were found near the front door and flowers were found knocked over. Smelling marijuana, officers found a marijuana grinder, pills and a soda bottle that was made into a bong in the apartment.
A Wind Police police officer found Bradford walking near the apartment building. Smelling of alcohol, they noted that her pants were torn and she had cuts on her arms and legs. Bradford told the officer she tried to climb over a barbed wire fence to get away from the police because she was out on bond and wasn’t supposed to be drinking.
Bradford denied hitting the man or having drugs in her home.
The man told police that Bradford called him at work and when he came to their apartment, he found her standing outside of the apartment holding a baby. Taking the baby from her, he went inside the home and she started to scream at him and hit him on the head.
The man told police he didn’t want charges filed against Bradford for hitting him.
Braford was out on bail for disorderly conduct in September where she was ordered not to consume alcohol or commit any new crimes.
She is currently being held on bail at the Racine County Jail.
