Edwardsville Woman Charged with Battery

EDWARDSVILLE,IL (KMOX) – An Edwardsville woman is jailed for allegedly battering another woman.

Madison County Sheriff’s officials say 43 year old Michelle Odell had consumed alcohol throughout the day Tuesday.

Later in the evening police say she ripped a phone out of a wall and grabbed a 63 year old woman by the hair.

The elderly woman was able to call police from a neighbor’s home on Sand Road in Edwardsville.

Police first took Odell to a hospital due to what they called her “high level of intoxication.”

Later when Odell was taken to the Madison County Jail she allegedly kicked a deputy while she was being processed into jail.

The charges against her are enhanced felony charges of Aggravated Battery because the deputy was engaged in his official duty at the time of the battery and the other alleged victim was over the age of 60.

Her bond was set at $60,000
