Woman Behind Bars For Allegedly Hitting Girl With a Hammer

ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

Hitting a girl with a hammer and choking her landed a woman behind bars.

The arrest report says Belinda Williams, 55, got into a fight with family members.

The fight was over a runaway girl staying at the house.

The fight turned physical and Williams told the relatives to leave or she would pour acid on them.

Williams then began choking them before grabbing a hammer and hitting on relative in the arm.

During an interview with investigators, Williams told them she didn't want them or the girl staying there.

She said it was because the girl was a runaway and the relatives were smoking marijuana.

Williams claims to have swung the hammer to try to scare them.

Williams is facing several charges including aggravated assault of a family member.
