Her family said she lives on Westover. The home's front yard was a couple inches long Monday.

Environmental court couldn't speak about this case, but said people go to jail on charges like this after they miss a court date.

Rhodes' family claims Rhodes never received any notification from the county.

"I think they [police] have a lot of other crime they could be dealing with than the grass," Brittney's father, Ricky Rhodes, said.

Rhodes has a $250 bond. She is due in court Tuesday.
