TOP comic book designer and YouTuber Chris Chan was handed a suspended jail sentence for macing a GameStop worker - years before her shock "incest" arrest, The Sun can exclusively reveal.
The 39-year-old blogger is currently being held at Henrico County Regional Jail West in Virginia after being booked on Sunday - and it has been revealed she has a previous criminal record.
A filing from Albemarle General District Court, seen by The Sun, shows she was charged with Class 1 Misdemeanour Assault in December 2014.
This was a lesser charge after she was initially booked for a Class 6 Felony for "dangerous gas unlawful release."
The controversial internet star, whose full name is Christine Weston Chandler, was previously known as Christian Weston Chandler and the complaint was made by James R. Herring.
According to reports, the arrest was after she maced an employee at GameStop who had asked her to leave.
She was allegedly barred for life from the store following the altercation.
Chan was given a 180 day suspended jail sentence and ordered to pay $514 in court costs, according to court records.
ANOTHER GAME STORE ATTACK
Previously, in October 2011, Chandler and her mother were arrested after Barbara hit a local game store manager with her car, leading them to pay a fine and undergo community service and a year of probation.
As reported, Chan was booked at 8.23pm on Sunday in relation to incest, according to the Henrico County Sheriff's website.
Henrico County Sheriff Alisa Gregory told Newsweek: "Christine Weston Chandler is currently being held in our Jail West facility on one count of incest and awaiting arraignment in Greene County, Virginia."
Sheriff Gregory was unable to provide further details relating to the arrest, but added "the criminal charges are not for Henrico County, but Greene County."
Information regarding a future court hearing has not yet been released, but the arrest came about after an earlier welfare check on Friday following online rumors of an assault.
Incest is a Class 1 Misdemeanour with a fine up to $2,500 and one year in jail.
Virginia Criminal Law can also identify the alleged assault as a Class 5 Felony which could result in up to ten years behind bars.
Chan is the creator of the Sonichu and Rosechu online comic book series.
Sonichu appears to be a crossover between Pokémon and Sonic the Hedgehog.
The series sees the main character Chris Chan standing her ground against witches, evil cops, and internet trolls.
The designer has over 50,000 subscribers on her YouTube page where she last posted five days ago.
Chan has been embroiled in several controversies over the years, and went viral in 2007 when Encyclopedia Dramatica mocked her comics allegedly ridiculing women and being homophobic.
In September 2011, Chan described herself as a "tomgirl" and said she was going through gender dysmorphia.
Five years later, she went on to change her name to Christine and came out as transgender.
According to reports, she legally changed her gender and also came out as bisexual, telling followers she was looking for love.
But she was the target of trolling with fake profiles catfishing her and leaking personal details about her.
