Mother of murder suspect arrested after assaulting media personnel

CATAWBA COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

The mother of the man arrested in the murder of Maggie Daniels was arrested after she assaulted several members of the media on Monday. 

Darlene Odom was arrested Monday afternoon and charged with three counts of simple assault several hours after her son's first court appearance.

Sharman Odom, Darlene Odom's son, was arrested on Saturday and charged with murder in the death of Newton-Conover High School teacher Maggie Daniels, who was found dead in her apartment in late June.

Monday morning, Sharman Odom made his first appearance in court. After the proceedings, Darlene Odom was approached by multiple members of the media as she left the court house.

Darlene Odom then assaulted at least three media personnel, including WBTV's Steve Ohnesorge, who suffered a bruised eye after Odom shoved his camera.

The entire incident was caught on tape. Odom can be seen pushing one cameraman before charging at Ohnesorge.

"Get out of my face!" she yells as she pushes his camera into his face.

She was then escorted to her vehicle by deputies.

Odom was arrested later on Monday and taken to the Catawba County Jail where she was placed under a $4,500 bond.
