Police were called just after 5 p.m. to the 100 block of Southeast Phillip Street after a dispute between mother and daughter became heated. The daughter was picking her children up from her mother’s house. The two were discussing a leak in the home’s foundation, and the daughter suggested digging a hole in the yard and tearing up the flower beds to fix it. This enraged her mother, who grabbed her daughter’s hair and drug her out the front door. The mother admitted to assaulting her daughter, but said it was because she would not leave and kept “touching things.” She was arrested and charged with assault causing injury.
