HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - A Butler County woman accused of helping two teens beat a baby alpaca to death was back in court Monday, this time for a completely different crime with one of the same teenagers.

Stacie Mullins was arrested in late June for contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Police allegedly chased Mullins in her vehicle as Nicholas Reynolds, one of the teenagers allegedly involved in beating an alpaca in February, drunkenly drove the vehicle.

Mullins had been awaiting trial for her involvement in the beating of a baby alpaca. She's charged with complicity to the beating death by Butler County.

After getting arrested a second time, the judge denied her bond.

Mullins was in court Monday trying to convince Judge Patricia Oney to overturn that ruling so she could take care of her 2-year-old child. Her version of the story is that she was forced to get in the car with Reynolds while he was drunk.

"He was already in my car, my car was unlocked and I was in the house, and I kept on fighting with him, and I was just tired of fighting with him and I just thought two street over wouldn't be a big deal, so I just let him drive there, and then he freaked out once the cop got behind us," Mullins said in court.

Mullins admitted to also drinking that night.

Judge Oney denied her bond a second time, telling Mullins that she needed to stay away from the teenagers involved in the case.

Mullins' court date is set for September 21.
