A 35-year-old Wichita Falls woman is behind bars tonight for the alleged abuse of three children.
Christina Chavez is charged with one count of injury to a child and one count of assault family violence.
An arrest affidavit states the children were frightened and asked a neighbor if they could stay at their house while Chavez "sobered up."
The children were sitting in a car when four people say they witnessed Chavez assaulting the children.
They told police that Chavez punched an 11-year-old boy then grabbed a 15-year-old girl by the hair and pulled her out of the car she was sitting in.
The 11-year-old told police that Chavez does this kind of thing "all the time."
She's jailed on $20-thousand in bonds.
