A Blytheville woman faces multiple charges after police said she got drunk and hit her children.

According to a Blytheville police report, officers responded to a call in the 1900-block of W. McHaney Drive a little after 9:00 p.m. on April 17 in reference to a domestic disturbance.

When officers arrived, they noted Terica Williams, 31, was under the influence.

Officers were told that Williams was hitting her children and the father had to physically remove her from them.

Officers stated that two of the children had bruising on their backs.

Williams reportedly told police that she had been on a two-day drinking binge.

She was taken into custody and charged with 2nd degree domestic battery and three counts of endangering the welfare of a minor.

Williams was arraigned in Blytheville District Court on April 20 and her bond was set at $10,000.

Her next court appearance will be May 31.
