CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Norma Fields, wife of Pratt Mayor Gary Fields, was arrested late Tuesday night for allegedly harassing a city employee who had filed a protective order against her.
Norma Fields walked into the Pratt Municipal Building and was "verbally abusive" toward clerk Kathy Fisher, subsequently violating a personal safety order, according to a criminal complaint filed in Kanawha County Magistrate Court on Tuesday.
She faces up to 90 days in jail and a fine of $1,000.
Both Norma and Gary Fields have faced charges before.
Mayor Fields was arrested for simple drug possession in August, after police allegedly found painkillers in his possession that he did not have a prescription for.
Fields said the pills belonged to Norma.
Earlier this month, Pratt town council members unanimously asked Fields to resign from his position as mayor, but he declined.
In 1992, when Fields was charged with driving under the influence, he faced a petition for his removal as mayor.
Norma Fields was arrested and charged with domestic battery in 2011, after she allegedly swung a metal cane at her husband outside of their home.
Twelve criminal complaints have been filed against Norma and Gary Fields by neighbors, but have been dismissed.
During a Pratt town council meeting earlier this month, Mayor Fields said that Norma had promised him she would not cause any more problems.
"If something would come up down the road, I will automatically resign rather than embarrass this town," Gary Fields said at the meeting.
