Annapolis police arrested a 22-year-old Annapolis woman yesterday and charged her with battery and possession of drugs.

Deshera L. Franklin of the first block of Heritage Court was being held in the county jail on $10,000 bond.

Police said they saw the alleged battery victim, 31-year-old Joy James of the first block of Pleasant St., running down Clay Street with scissors in her hand, chasing another woman.
