A former Longview city councilwoman has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after police say she beat her roommate with a golf club. 

Longview police said 59-year-old Karen Hailey began yelling at and hitting her roommate when he tried to leave the apartment. Police say that's when Hailey picked up a golf club and started hitting the roommate for several minutes. The roommate finally called police. 

In 2007, Hailey was charged with assault after police say she attacked her brother with a staple gun. Hailey served on the city council from 2002 to 2006. She declined to run for reelection after allegations in 2004 that she sent racially charged emails to fellow council members.
