Head butting a patrol car may cost a woman a decade in jail after it violated her parole for a string of home burglaries.The woman, Amanda Collins, 39, of Morrison, entered guilty pleas before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke to charges of resisting arrest, domestic assault and vandalism to government property. She was given an 11-month, 29-day sentence to be served concurrently with a parole violation, which will be heard at a later date in Circuit Court. She will remain held until that time.Her charges come after she was involved in a domestic incident outside a gas station last month on South Chancery Street with a man she knew.“They got in an argument over Ms. Collins riding other males around in his vehicle,” said McMinnville policewoman Rachel Nichols, noting an off-duty officer, who was inside the store, saw Collins initiate the physical confrontation by pushing the man she was arguing with.
