“During a verbal altercation with the victim, Miss McNealy had a defensive chemical spray and used it on the victim,” Owens said.

The victim was treated at the scene and did not have to be transported to the hospital.

Owens said anytime a defensive chemical spray is unleashed in an environment that is not a self-defense situation, it results in a felony criminal charge.

McNealy’s bond was set at $15,000 and she was booked in the Houston County Jail.
