A Bryan woman faces a first-degree felony charge after police say she bit a teenager.

According to Bryan police, officers responded to a home in the 800 block of California Street on Tuesday after receiving a call that Candis Matrice Evans, 28, was high on PCP and "flipping out" on two children.

When police arrived on the scene, Evans was found screaming at a teenager. When the teen tried to leave the room, police say Evans grabbed the teen by the pants and bit into the teen's shoulder. According to authorities, an officer struggled with Evans before eventually hitting her in the back of the head so she would release the child from her jaws. An assisting officer arrived and police say Evans ripped the lapel off his uniform.

She is charged with injury to a child, a first-degree felony punishable by up to 99 years in prison and $10,000 in fines and resisting arrest, a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and $4,000 in fines. She is also being held on a public intoxication warrant.

Evans is being held at the Brazos County Detention Center on $79,000 bond.
