 An East Texas woman is in jail after a domestic incident in which a child was endangered.

Longview police arrested Vivica Porter, 36, at a residence on Saturday on charges of assault with a weapon.

Porter was charged with aggravated assault-family violence, and endangering a child-criminal negligence.

She is being held on $15,000 bond.
