A Boxholm woman faces charges from a domestic disturbance in Jefferson.

Police Chief Mark Clouse says 23-year-old Michelle Nicole Howard was arrested early Saturday morning and was charged with a Class C Felony for second degree burglary, and serious misdemeanors for her first offense OWI and possession of a schedule II controlled substance. Clouse says just after 3:30am, an officer responded to a call that Howard was kicking in an apartment door in the 1300 block of Westwood Drive. Howard claimed she was driving by her ex-boyfriend’s residence and saw another female’s car parked there. Howard told police she didn’t want her child with the other woman and wanted to take the child from the residence. The ex-boyfriend wouldn’t open the front door and Howard allegedly kicked the door in and caused damage.

The officer noticed that Howard appeared to be drunk. She failed all of his field sobriety tests and was arrested on the burglary and OWI charges. As the officer brought in Howard to be booked into jail, he searched her belongings and found a bottle of hydrocodone that didn’t belong to her. Clouse tells Raccoon Valley Radio that hydrocodone is a schedule II narcotic, and that’s why she is charged with possession of a controlled substance.

Howard was booked and later released on her own recognizance from the Greene County Jail.
