It's not often that a perfect storm of irony rolls into town. But a woman name Fellony has been charged with, you guess it, felony battery after a bar fight in Indiana.

In what must be the most unfortunate case of a child living up to her name, Fellony Silas, 30, allegedly smashed a glass against a woman's forehead. The altercation started after the 24-year-old victim bumped into Fellony on the bar's dance floor, The Smoking Gun reports.

So what kind of punishment is our dear Fellony facing for her alleged antics?

The aptly-named suspect was arrested and charged with a Class C felony by Monroe County police. If convicted, under Indiana law Fellony could get anywhere from 2 to 8 years in prison, be fined up to $10,000, or both.

Like many states, Indiana law categorizes felonies into four classes: A, B, C, and D. Class A felonies are the most severe and carry from 20 years up to life imprisonment depending on the offense. Fines of up to $10,000 can also be imposed.

So with that in mind, one could say that Fellony lucked out by just getting away with a Class C felony. At least that's what the person who tells her parents should say before letting them know that their little girl is behind bars.

As for the victim, she survived the attack and was sent to the hospital for medical treatment. Fellony is currently jailed in lieu of $10,000 bond.

This isn't the suspect's first run-in with the law. Fellony was arrested on a number of charges in the same county, including forgery, theft, fraud, and disorderly conduct. Hopefully this most recent felony bar battery charge will be Fellony's last.
