A Pitt County detention officer has ended up on the other side of the law, accused of assaulting her daughter.
Court records show Tamika Sneed of Winterville is charged with assault inflicting serious bodily injury.
She was arrested February 2nd, and the arrest warrant says she gave her daughter a black eye, bruised nose and a severe hemorrhage in the left eye.
A Sheriff's Office spokeswoman says Sneed has worked as a detention officer for the past three years and has never had any other disciplinary problems. The spokeswoman says they conducted an internal investigation, and pending the outcome of Sneed's court case, the woman continues to work at the detention center.
Sneed was released on a $10,000 unsecured bond and has a March 29th court date.
