A Woodstock woman awaiting trial on charges of bringing a gun onto a middle school campus in 2019 was arrested on new charges this week while out on bond.

Kimberly P. Bacon, 49, was booked into the Cherokee County jail after she reportedly shoved a family member at her Woodstock residence and then threatened another person with a hammer on Wednesday afternoon, according to an arrest warrant.

Bacon was charged with misdemeanor simple battery for the shove of the family member and felony terroristic threats for menacing the other person with the hammer.

Bacon was out of jail on bond awaiting trial in a November 2019 case in which she is accused of bringing a gun onto the campus of Mill Creek Middle School and assaulting a school administrator. She is charged with two counts of aggravated assault, one count of bringing a weapon onto school grounds, one count of misdemeanor battery, one count of criminal trespass, one count of cruelty to children, one count of violation of a family violence protective order, and one count of making terroristic threats in that case.

She was initially denied bond in December, 2019 in that case, but was later released on bond. A hearing on modification of that bond has been scheduled for Feb. 16, according to court records. Her trial is tentatively scheduled for mid-March.
