mpd badge 30MADISONVILLE, Ky. (6/19/19) — A woman was arrested early Tuesday morning following a domestic dispute at a home off South Seminary Street.

According to a Madisonville Police Department report, officers responded 12:17 a.m. for a claim that a woman went into her childrens bedroom and threatened to kill her son. Police were told she was holding her child down and forcing his face into a pillow, when her boyfriend pulled the mother off her son and into another room.

The woman, identified as 33-year-old Mysti M. Wicks, struggled with her boyfriend, according to the report, while he restrained her and called the woman’s father for help. In the process, she bit him on the arm, which was bleeding.

Wicks smelled strongly of alcoholic beverages and admitted to consuming it, police wrote.

She was charged with fourth-degree assault. Wicks was released from Hopkins County Jail later Tuesday on her own recognizance.
