On March 22, 2018, Crystal Dawn Collins, age 30, was sentenced to a year in county jail after entering a plea of "no contest" to felony assault causing serious bodily injury in violation of Penal Code 243(d).

The charges arise from an incident on February 2, 2018, in the City of Placerville.  Collins, who goes by the nickname "Wild Child," attacked a woman  who was sitting next to Collins' boyfriend in the parking area between Wells Fargo and El Dorado Savings banks.  

During the unprovoked attack, Collins knocked the victim to the ground and kicked her in the head several times.  Several bystanders witnessed the attack and called 911.  Placerville Police arrived on scene and apprehended Collins without incident.

The case was investigated by the Placerville Police Department and prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Ashley Colivas.
