CLEVELAND, Ga. — White County authorities have arrested a Cleveland woman and charged her with battery, family violence, following an altercation at 515 Camelback Road.
The arrest report by the White County Sheriff’s Office states that Angel Heafner, 27, attacked her brother Alan Michael Heafner, scratching his face and attempting to retrieve a knife to use against him.
Michael Heafner told deputies he was asked to come to his residence after another sister, Kasie Ann Heafner said Angel, had locked her out. When he arrived home, he argued with Angel, who was staying at the home, about her alleged drug addiction and about people he did not know coming into his residence.
He said she then attacked him, scratching his face and hands. He attempted to restrain her but once he let her go, she ran onto the porch and retrieved a knife. He said he restrained her again and once she calmed down, she ran into a bedroom and locked the door.
According to the report, she admitted attacking her brother and attempted to get a knife to use against him.
Deputies arrested her and transported her to the White County Detention Center.
After arriving at the detention center, Heafner requested pictures of her arms be taken to document injuries received during the altercation. But detention staff stated that a video camera had been on Heafner since she arrived and that she was intentionally scratching her arms and legs since being placed into a cell.
