CHARLES CITY – A woman who was allegedly seen smashing pumpkins against a school building and hitting herself has been arrested by Charles City police.

Tessa Marion, age 21 with no formal address, was finally arrested on December 24 after a weeks-long investigation into an incident that took place on November 19. Police reported that on that day at about 3:25 PM, officers were called to the area of the Charles City Middle School on Grand Avenue to investigate a female subject who was smashing pumpkins against the school building. She was also reported to have been walking down the street hitting herself and throwing yet more pumpkins. It was not revealed where these pumpkins came from or how she was able to carry them.

The subject, now identified as Marion, was located in the 300 block of 5th Avenue and officers questioned her. Police said charges were pending at that time. On December 10, an arrest warrant for Marion was issued by a judge, and police caught up with her two weeks later and made the arrest. She is now charged with fifth degree criminal mischief and must appear in court Wednesday morning, December 31.

Marion was arrested by Mason City police in November of 2013 after a botched drug deal in a mall parking lot. She was arrested on a felony D charge of Intent to Deliver Marijuana. In court this past April, Judge Annette Boehlje gave Marion a deferred judgement with one year of probation. She was also assessed $1,152.58 in fines and court costs. She has already been found guilty twice of violating that probation.
