Hopkins County Sheriff’s Deputies were called to a disturbance involving a juvenile in the 100 block of Sandy Hill Road Wednesday night around 9:30 p.m. There the investigating deputy found a juvenile with visible marks on the back of his neck. The deputy was directed across the road to the neighbor’s house where contact was made with the alleged suspect.
During the interview with the suspect, the deputy noted a strong odor of alcoholic beverage emitting from the body of the suspect as the suspect admitted grabbing the juvenile from the back and pulling him toward her during the altercation. During the arrest of the suspect at around 10:58 p.m., the deputy noted a strong smell of marijuana on the suspect. The suspect’s children were also transported to Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office and CPS was notified.
As a result of the evening, Laci Marie Reichel, 28, of Sulphur Springs was arrested and charged with Injury to a Child (A third degree Felony). Her bond was set at $10,000 Thursday morning by Justice of the Peace Brad Cummings.
