A woman from Richmond is accused of hitting and pushing her mother down a flight of stairs.
Amanda Kimberly Bishop, who is 29 years old, was charged with aggravated battery and battery with a deadly weapon this week in Wayne Circuit Court.
During a fight on Sunday at their family’s North 21st Street home, Richmond police say Bishop pushed her mother down about 15 stairs and then hit her in the head with a metal step stool.
An officer said that when he got to the scene, Bishop’s mother was “lying at the bottom of the stairs” and bleeding “profusely” from a “large, gaping laceration” on her forehead.
Bishop was taken into custody In 2000
An affidavit says that the woman was taken by ambulance to Reid Hospital, where the head wound was closed with several staples.
The mother and another family member said that Bishop’s plan to check out the attic of her family’s home may have caused the fight.
In the 2000 block of Grand Boulevard, Bishop was taken into custody. Wednesday, she was still being held in the Wayne County jail on a $50,000 cash bond.
A Level 3 felony is an aggravated battery, which can get you up to 16 years in prison. A Level 5 felony is a battery with a deadly weapon, which can get you up to 6 years in prison.
Bishop is also accused of committing crimes over and over again. A court document says that she has been found guilty of battery against a public safety officer and twice of having meth in her possession.
