A 44-year-old woman was arrested Friday evening after she allegedly went on a bashing spree with a brick.

According to the Bartow County Sheriff’s Office report, the woman, identified as Judy Annette Rivers of 19 Echota Road, Cartersville, had been acting strange so her boyfriend left to run errands. When he returned, he said Rivers was drinking heavily and began arguing, saying he was cheating on her.

The man said he left again and Rivers began calling and leaving voicemails stating she was going to destroy his house. The pair argued when he came home, and Rivers grabbed a brick and began smashing his Ford Ranger pickup, leaving dents in the hood and damaging both side mirrors.

Rivers fled the area on foot, tossing her purse into the yard as she ran. Deputies pursued her on a short chase before she was apprehended on Seminole Road. The purse contained a glass pipe with white powder residue and a syringe.

Rivers was arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine, criminal trespass under the Family Violence Act, drug-related objects, criminal damage to property in the second degree and simple battery (FVA).
