A Pine Bluff woman was arrested Friday after she allegedly threw an object at a female relative, striking the girl in the eye.

Christina Brewer, 35, reportedly admitted throwing a candle at the girl because the girl “disrespected her,” Detective Brad Vilches reported in a probable cause affidavit presented in court Monday during a hearing for Brewer.

Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer reported that police were sent to the emergency room at Jefferson Regional Medical Center where they found the girl, whose eye was reportedly “swollen shut.”

Vilches reported that the girl initially told police she had fallen down the stairs, but after police were able to talk to her alone, the girl said Brewer had “struck her and told her to lie.”

A hospital nurse reportedly told police she saw Brewer “continue to inflict injuries” to the girl, Kizer said.

When Brewer was questioned by police, she reportedly claimed that the candle she threw didn’t hit the girl, and said the injury was caused when the girl’s eye hit the wall while trying to avoid the candle.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $25,00o bond for Brewer after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge her with second-degree domestic battery.

Bridgforth also ordered Brewer to have no contact with the alleged victim, and to come back to court July 16.
