Shari Wilder was arrested and charged Friday with battery of an elected official, trespass and disruption of a polling place.

Authorities say the 45-year-old Wilder verbally harassed early voters in the office. When Supervisor of Elections Jerry Holland went into the lobby to try to calm her, she began hitting him and throwing objects across the room.
She then fled the scene but was later picked up by police.

She had been in the office earlier in the day. It wasn'timmediately clear why she returned.
