A Vine Grove woman is facing multiple felony charges after she was arrested Sunday night by Vine Grove police.

According to an arrest citation, Clarissa Padgett, 22, entered a Locust Street residence through an unlocked back door late Sunday afternoon without permission and refused to leave. She also is accused of assaulting a woman.

Padgett is charged with first-degree burglary, a Class B felony punishable by 10 to 20 years in prison, if convicted, theft of identity without consent, a Class D felony punishable by one to five years in prison, if convicted, as well as multiple misdemeanor charges, including fourth-degree assault.

She had entered the home holding a cat, the citation said, and began screaming and yelling at a woman. After she was asked to leave, the citation said she struck the woman in the face, causing a laceration.

She also provided police with a different name and the last four numbers of another person’s Social Security number when questioned.

Additionally, while seated in the back of a Vine Grove Police Department cruiser, she attempted to break out a side window, the report said.

“ ... she did not leave when asked to and that she was not free to come and go into their house as she please,” according to the arrest citation.

Padgett is being held in lieu of a $10,000 cash bond. She will appear Feb. 7 in Hardin District Court.
