A local woman is facing felony charges for attacking a CPS worker Tuesday morning.
KRIS 6 News learned the woman was upset over a court decision earlier that morning to turn her grandson over to the custody of his biological father.
She and her daughter went visit her grandson at the local offices of Child Protective Services, but police say the woman became upset and hit the case worker.
Because the CPS worker is a public servant employed by the state, the charge will be assault of a public servant, which is a felony charge.
The case worker was taken to the hospital for a cut above her eye.
