Because of two prior convictions for domestic battery, a Jefferson County woman could be charged with a felony after she was arrested last week.

Carrie McCann, 27, is currently on probation for domestic battery, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said during a court hearing Tuesday for McCann.

McCann was originally arrested on a misdemeanor charge on Nov. 10, but the charge was upgraded to a felony because of the prior convictions.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Jennifer Carr reported that deputies were sent to a reported disturbance in the 9000 block of Shine Road, where McCann’s mother told deputies McCann had struck her several times.

Kizer said deputies reported an odor of intoxicants on McCann, who was holding a child and refused to put the child down as deputies instructed.

Carr reported that McCann resisted arrest and also threatened to kill the child.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $25,000 bond for McCann after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge her with second offense, third-degree domestic battery, endangering the welfare of a minor and terroristic threatening — all felonies.

Bridgforth appointed the Public Defender’s Office to represent McCann and ordered her to have no contact with her mother until the case is settled.
