A Hillsboro woman appeared Monday in Hillsboro Municipal Court on a charge of first-degree misdemeanor assault.
According to an affidavit filed with the court, the Highland County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of an assault at a SR 138 residence on Aug. 1.
Jillian McCarty, 25, allegedly came to the residence around 2 a.m. The affidavit described McCarty as the alleged victim’s “ex.” She reportedly went to the residence to pick up a child, as stated in the affidavit.
The alleged victim reported that McCarty “appeared to be intoxicated,” according to the affidavit.
The alleged victim reportedly told McCarty to leave the property. At that time, she allegedly “refused and became belligerent with him,” according to the affidavit.
The affidavit added that when the alleged victim attempted to close the door, McCarty allegedly “struck him in the face and grabbed his shirt, causing scratches on his chest.”
According to the affidavit, the alleged victim was able to close the door and call law enforcement. When the deputy arrived, McCarty had “already left the area,” the affidavit added.
The deputy also reported that he attempted to make contact with McCarty at her residence without success.
According to court records, a warrant was issued for McCarty on Aug. 3. She was arrested Monday morning, according to jail records.
McCarty appeared in municipal court and a $1,000 bond was set on a possible probation violation. Records showed that McCarty was convicted of fourth-degree misdemeanor disorderly conduct earlier this year.
A pretrial on her new charge is set for next month. While her case is pending, she is to have no contact with the alleged victim and must observe a curfew.
