An Augusta woman was arrested Friday on charges of simple battery and possession of methamphetamine after deputies spotted the drug in her purse as she looked for her ID.

About 2 p.m., Richmond County deputies were called to the 4100 block of Daisy Lane to investigate an altercation between two women. One of the women said she was leaving her house to pick up her children when her sister, Tammy M. Ivey, 46, chased her into the front yard, pulled her to the ground and started punching her, according to a report from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office. The victim said she escaped to a church across the street.

When deputies asked for the suspect’s ID, Ivey opened her purse and they noticed baggies and glass pipes, the report said.

Deputies searched the purse and found eight small baggies, two pipes and two cut straws with a white bowl. A field test confirmed the presence of methamphetamine.

Maybe her sister was punching

Maybe her sister was punching her because she is a tweaker.
