CCSO charges woman with tampering, assault

A Hopkinsville woman was arrested early Monday morning for multiple charges, including fourth-degree assault and tampering with physical evidence.

According to the report from the Christian County Sheriff’s Department, deputies responded to a Dawson Springs residence for reports of a disturbance that was called in by a 12-year old in the home. Upon arrival, the victim advised that he had found methamphetamine in 44-year old Wendy Thompson of Hopkinsville’s nightstand and told her he was going to call the police.

Thompson allegedly ran and flushed the meth down a toilet, and when the victim attempted to stop her, she reportedly began to fight him, scratching him and hitting him. Upon speaking with Thompson, she reportedly told deputies that the victim had not hit her and she did flush the drugs.

She also allegedly admitted to consuming meth earlier in the day. Deputies were able to locate a pipe that she was attempting to destroy.

Thompson was taken into custody and charged with tampering with evidence, fourth-degree assault and possession of drug paraphernalia.
