Madison County Sheriff officers arrested a 61-year-old Madison County woman after she fired gun shots at a registered sex offender she didn't want on her property.
A deputy was called out to a home on Paoli Road where a resident claimed his neighbor Eddie L. Manley had shot him in the foot.
The man suffered non-life threatening injuries with reported cuts on his toes caused by a pellet.
According to police reports the victim said Manley's boyfriend allowed him to come to the house to gather some belongings he left while in prison and while collecting his items, he said Manley exited her home and told him to leave,
The man said he then heard gun shots and fled from the home, but didn't know he had been wounded until later.

Manley told deputies that the man lied about why he was in prison and she had warned him to never come on her property. She claims when she saw him, she became angry
Manley has been charged with aggravated assault, making a terroristic threat and pointing a pistol at another.
