— A Knightdale mother has been charged with misdemeanor child abuse and resisting arrest.

Arrest warrants filed by Knightdale police state that Paris Renee Lowe-James, 51, of 308 Indiana Ave., gave her daughter a bloody nose and swollen lip. Her daughter was less than 16 years old at the time.

Police said that during the arrest, Lowe-James fought an officer taking her to jail.

She was given a $7,000 secured bond and scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 21, 2011.

Court records state that as a further condition of her release, Lowe-James must have no unsupervised contact with any minor. Records show that she was the subject of an investigation by Wake County Social Services earlier this year.
