A victim suffered severe burns to their arms and back after 61-year-old Charlene Thomson allegedly poured hot grease on the person following an argument. The hot grease incident occurred at their residence at Hawaiian Terrace outside of Cincinnati, Ohio. When police arrived at the scene of the crime, they could clearly tell that the victim had been burned severely with hot grease, as her injuries were visible to responding officers.
The Cincinnati cops arrested Thomson at the scene once they learned all the details of the argument and what happened afterward. Thomson was arrested and charged with felony assault and was placed into custody at the Hamilton County jail, where she was held without bond until her trial date.
At the time of the hot grease incident, Thomson was no stranger to the law. She already had two outstanding warrants for her arrest. These charges were for criminal damage or endangering, according to a report posted by Rare US.
In two incidents, one from November 2016 and the other from March 2017, Thomson was accused of throwing rocks at her male neighbors’ windows and breaking the glass. In addition to the charges against her for breaking the glass, Thomson was also charged with assault and criminal damaging or endangerment, and criminal trespass back in 2008. Clearly, she had a bone to pick with these neighbors and made it very clear that she was angry at them for whatever they did to upset her mood.
During the 2008 incident, which occurred on March 11, 2008, Cincinnati police wrote up a criminal report and complaint that Thomson punched a victim in the face. She allegedly caused this victim physical harm, but the charges were later dismissed in August of the same year.
In another incident from 2008, this one occurring in July of that year, Thomson allegedly kicked at an officer and spit while in the back of the squad car.
Thomson’s rap sheet goes back to 2006, when she was accused of domestic violence for allegedly striking her daughter in the mouth and the back of the head. The attack injured Thomson’s daughter’s hand when the girl was trying to defend herself from her mother’s rage. This charge was later dismissed in February 2007.
With a history of violent offenses, it seems like Thomson has been escalating her crimes until this incident that resulted in her pouring hot grease on her victim.
It’s clear that Thomson has a problem with controlling her anger, especially when it comes to her neighbors and those around her. The hot grease incident is definitely one of the most severe and dangerous attacks she has done so far.
The victim of the hot grease attack was taken to the hospital for treatment, where they were treated for their burn injuries. The Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas set the bond at $50,000, and Thomson was ordered to stay away from the victim until her trial date.
Thomson is now facing charges of felony assault, and if convicted, she could face up to 11 years in prison for her crime.
