Assault by Children’s Daddy’s Girlfriend

 Laurens City Police were dispatched to City Park at 9:39 Friday night on a report of a fight in progress. On arrival, they met with a 27-year-old Laurens woman who said that she was having an argument with another woman, the girlfriend of the father of her children, about her not giving one of the children a bath the previous night. She said she thought the argument was over when she was struck on the side of the face by the woman, leading to a fight between the two. Eventually her mother and others came and broke up the fight.  Laurens Police arrested 30-year-old Jessica Brewer Burton of 403 Willard Road, Clinton and charged her with Assault and Battery 3rd Degree. Ms. Burton was released from the Johnson Detention Center Saturday on posting a $2,000 personal recognizance bond.
