A patrol officer who stopped two cyclists ended up taking a wanted woman into custody – but not without a fight.
At approximately 3:50 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 28, 2018, the officer stopped a woman and a man who were cycling on Joseph Street without lights. The male identified himself properly, according to a press release from Kingston Police, but the female provided a false name. The officer cautioned the woman about obstructing police, and the woman provided yet another false name. The woman then resisted arrest and the officer had to use force in order to handcuff her.
The woman continued to resist arrest when the officer tried to place her in the police cruiser. She kicked the door of the cruiser and then struck the officer in the face with her arm.
Once finally in the back of the cruiser, the woman eventually provided her name. She was found to be wanted by both Brockville Police and Smiths Falls Police for numerous charges and failing to attend court.
A search of the accused woman found that she was in possession of several stolen credit and debit cards not in her name. The 21-year-old local woman is charged with obstructing police, assaulting a police officer, and 11 counts of possession of stolen property.
