The complaint says Bivens suffered a ruptured ear drum and skull fracture in the fight.
The co-workers got into the brawl at a bar after Bivens thought Ambriz was hitting on her husband.
She confronted Ambriz, who became angry and allegedly shoved Bivens.
Ambriz is set to appear in court September 21. It’s unclear if she has a lawyer that can be contacted for comment.
The Charleston Gazette-Mail reported Ambriz could face ‘up to a year in jail and/or a fine of no more than $500’ if she’s found guilty.
