First and second booking photos
Hopkinsville Police arrested a woman twice in a period of less than four hours Thursday.
The first incident happened about 9:30 a.m. when a disturbance was reported on Hazel Street and Chief Clayton Sumner arrived to find 41-year old Joy Mathis of Hopkinsville fighting with another female, according to the report.
Investigation determined she had been involved in another incident with Combs the previous night where the police had to be called. Mathis was arrested and charged with fourth-degree assault and retaliating against a participant in a legal process.
She was released from jail on her own recognizance and then allegedly violated orders to stay away from the victim when she returned to the Hazel Street address three hours later and assaulted her again.
Police say there was blood on the victim’s clothes and blood coming from her nose this time and Mathis was arrested again.
She was booked in the Christian County Jail and charged with retaliating against a participant in a legal process and violation of conditions of release.
