A city councilwoman of a small town in Kansas is facing charges after an incident following her arrest where she has been accused of biting a police officer on his thumb so hard that it broke the bone.

Late in the morning on June 29, officers arrived at the home of Carol Fowler, a 48-year-old woman from Huron, Kansas, who works on the city council for the location that serves as home to 73 residents. She was being apprehended due to an outstanding warrant issued for failing to appear at a scheduled court date for charges she incurred in December.

Fowler allegedly was not compliant with the officers when they tried to arrest her, and she was reported as having kicked and scratched at them until a stun gun was eventually deployed in an attempt to subdue her. Neither of the deputies reported any significant injuries to them during the encounter, and she was taken to the Atchison county jail.

Two Maryland woman in a domestic partnership who share a home have been accused of several child abuse related charges when three children in their care were allegedly fed dog excrement and found with several types of injuries.

29-year-old Amanda Wright and her girlfriend 25-year-old Besline Joseph share a home with three children, ages 8, 9 and 10. The relationship between the women and the children has not been made public.

In a period that investigators purport began late in the spring of 2017 Wright and Joseph are believed to have kept the children locked in closets as well as in the basement of the home. Injuries on the victims led investigators to the notion that the women had been using several items, including sticks and belts, to beat the youngsters. A stun gun was also discovered in the home and assumed as one of the items used in the alleged abuse.
