HIAWASSEE, Ga. (AP) -- A North Carolina woman has been arrested after authorities say she pretended to be a lawyer at the Towns County Detention Center in North Georgia.

The Towns County Sheriff's Office reports that 46-year-old Melissa Sue Arrendale has been under investigation for months.

Arrendale was arrested and booked into the Towns County Detention Center on June 13, but was released on bond. She faces charges of forgery, making false statements and writings, and one charge of practicing law without a license.

Further details have not been released. It's unclear if Arrendale has an attorney.
