Ohio woman allegedly poured hot grease on victim after spat
An Ohio woman with a lengthy rap sheet was charged with assault after she allegedly poured hot grease on a victim during an argument.
Charlene Thompson, 61, was charged with felonious assault and booked into the Hamilton County Jail, online records show.
Thompson and her victim got into a dispute at a residence in Cincinnati Sunday when she allegedly tossed the grease, leaving her victim with “severe” burns to the back and arm, FOX19 reports.
She was also wanted on two outstanding warrants, both for criminal damaging or endangering, when she was busted.

Thompson appeared in court Wednesday, where Assistant Hamilton County Prosecutor David Wood reportedly request high bond amount, as the victim suffered serious injury.
“I’m requesting a high bond as the court is well aware, burns are some of the most devastating, painful, debilitating, long-term injures that someone can suffer," said Wood, according to KOLD.
A judge set her bond at $15,000, and ordered her to keep away from her victim.
Thompson has faced her fair share of legal drama over the years; between 2016 and 2017, she was twice accused of breaking a neighbor’s window by throwing rocks, and she was also charged with assault in 2008 after punching a victim in the face.
FOX19 reports she was also slapped with a domestic violence charge in 2006 for allegedly striking her daughter in the mouth and back of the head on Christmas Eve, though the charge was later dismissed.
