LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - First her husband filed a domestic violence order against her, now a Kentucky woman faces more charges after officials say she tried to attack a judge.

In addition to a 120-day contempt of court sentence, Melissa Harvick of Wayne County also faces counts of terroristic threatening and intimidation.

Officials say she interupted her husband during court proceedings and, shortly after, the judge sentenced her to 10 days for contempt. That's when they say she lunged at her.

After the altercation, the judge ruled that the domestic violence order will remain intact.
