A LaFollette woman was jailed after she reportedly destroyed the front door of a home at 200 Smith Oak Lane.
The victim told police that Kimberly Nicole Walden, 702 S. 21st Street, LaFollette, came to her home and began kicking the door and swearing at the victim, telling her to come outside, according to the report.
Walden then allegedly began striking the front door of the home with an ax.
Walden was found on Ridenour Lane where she reportedly admitted to causing the damage. She was arrested and taken to the Campbell County Jail.
Upon being searched at the jail, the corrections officer allegedly found a green, leafy substance believed to be marijuana.
Walden was charged with vandalism under $500, reckless endangerment, possession of a schedule VI substance, and introduction of contraband into a penal facility.
