Louisville, Kentucky (The Weekly Vice) - Misty Lawson, a 30-year-old Louisville woman was jailed Saturday after she allegedly punched her 10-year-old son in his face during an anger-management class.

According to Louisville Metropolitan Police, Lawson was attending an in-home anger-management class mandated by the Kentucky State child services agency when she reportedly punched the child in the face and body several times.

The assault left the boy with a knuckle-shaped imprint and a bruise on his face. A counselor witnessed the abuse and took the child to the police station. Child protective services was also notified.

Investigators say Lawson admitted that she punched her son because he allegedly called her a "bitch". She also claimed that the child had severe behavioral problems and that he was trying to attack her when she slapped him.

Records show that she was apprehended last June after she reportedly left her two children unattended in a hot vehicle while she and a male companion shopped at a local Kroger supermarket. She also has several other charges on her record, including receiving stolen property, possession of marijuana, menacing, resisting arrest, and contempt of court.

Lawson was booked into jail and charged with fourth degree assault, a misdemeanor. She was released on her own recognizances and is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday.
