She was arrested Monday on the new charge, which alleges she stalked the officer from Aug. 5 to Sept. 1.
Bond is set at $25,000, and a judge ordered a mental health evaluation as a condition of her posting bond. She also was ordered to have no contact with the officer and to stay more than 100 yards away from his residence and place of employment.
According to Johnson County court records, Smallwood pleaded guilty to stalking the officer in August 2012 and was placed on probation for one year.
