W’burg woman charged with biting her mother

CORBIN — By John L. Ross

Staff Writer

A Williamsburg woman remains behind bars and faces several charges — including a charge for allegedly biting her mother.

According to Whitley County Sheriff Colan Harrell, Nickie Carpenter, 26, was placed in the Whitley County Detention Center Thursday.

He said that K-9 Deputy Kirk Mays and Detective John Hill responded to a domestic violence complaint on Upper Mulberry Road in Williamsburg.

There, they found Carpenter, who Harrell said had left the residence after biting her mother.

Mays and Hill attempted to give her instructions, which Harrell alleged she refused to follow.

Carpenter then allegedly fled on foot and tried to toss her purse over the road.

She was arrested, and Hill charged her with fourth-degree assault, third-degree criminal mischief, public intoxication and resisting arrest.

Harrell said that Mays then got permission from the homeowner to conduct a search — and that’s when he allegedly found several needles, Suboxone and Xanax, as well as other drugs.

Mays then charged Carpenter with possession of drug paraphernalia, prescription not in original container, two counts of illegal possession of a legend drug, fleeing or evading, first-degree possession of controlled substance, second-degree possession of controlled substance, and third-degree possession of controlled substance, as well as tampering with physical evidence.

Deputies then served Carpenter with two arrest warrants for theft by unlawful taking, fourth-degree assault, and terroristic threatening.

She remains jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center. JailTracker records do not yet show the amount of her bond, or even if she has one.
