NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office deputies arrested a 30-year-old woman on Thursday in connection to allegations that she got into an argument with her 76-year-old mother-in-law and pushed her to the ground, injuring her.
Christie King, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a third-degree injury to the elderly. Her bail has been set at $10,000.
According to the arrest affidavit, a Nacogdoches County Sheriff Office deputy responded to a disturbance on County Road 4191. When the deputy arrived on the scene, he learned that King was the aggressor in the fight and that she had approached her mother-in-law in a way that made her feel threatened, the affidavit stated.
After a brief struggle, King allegedly grabbed her mother-in-law and threw her to the ground hard enough that it made her bleed. The alleged victim also had finger-shaped contusions on her arm, according to the affidavit.
King was arrested at the scene and transported to the jail in an effort to prevent further family violence, the affidavit.
