A community leader whose crusade against prostitution in her neighborhood made news was arrested and accused of spitting on a woman.
58-year-old Patricia Ward, the president of the Lincoln, Gordon, Mercer Neighborhood watch, is charged with simple battery.
Police say she fought with 34-year-old Shenada Johnson at the intersection of West Lincoln Avenue and South Davis Street near where she posted a "No Prostitution Zone" sign.
She has been taking pictures of people she says are involved with prostitution.
Ward was taking pictures of Johnson in the street Tuesday morning.
That led to an argument and shoving. Witnesses told police Ward spit in Johnson's face.
