East Lake's ‘Auntie's' assault case heads to grand jury

Posted: Updated:

EAST LAKE, HAMILTON COUNTY (WRCB) - The case against a woman accused of assaulting a police officer has been turned over to a grand jury.

Deborah Henry allegedly hit a Housing Authority officer in the face during an arrest.

Henry says that's not what happened. She says she's been labeled a "troublemaker" for speaking out about a teen shooting last year.

Henry says she could have avoided jail time if she pleaded guilty.

Because of the charges, she could lose her public housing.
