Woman Charged For Allegedly "Mule" Kicking Police Officer

The incident occurred as the woman was being brought into an area hospital.

(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - Police say an unruly female struck an officer while being transported to an area hospital. 

Lawrenceburg Police responded to the top level of the Pavilion Garage at Hollywood Casino on November 24, where a female, later identified as Christina D. Vance was seen rambling with foam coming out of her mouth. 

When approached by officers, Vance allegedly stated that she had used "meth" three days prior. She also told police she hadn't slept in three days. 

While talking to Vance, police say she would spit on certain syllables. It wasn't purposeful but officers took precautions to distance themselves from her. 

However, since she was close to the edge of the parking garage, officers ended up handcuffing Vance for her safety and transported her to Highpoint Health. 

Upon arriving at the hospital, police say Vance would not follow direction to exit the police cruiser. After main attempts, she exited the vehicle and was taken inside the hospital, where she continued to scream and curse with saliva flying from her mouth. 

A mask was placed over her face to stop the saliva from flying. At that time, police say Vance became more resistant. Vance then allegedly "mule" kicked an officer in the chin, causing pain. 

Vance is charged with Battery on a Public Safety Officer Causing Injury (Level 5 Felony), Battery on a Public Safety Officer (Level 6 Felony), Public Intoxication (Class B misdemeanor) and Disorderly Conduct (Class B misdemeanor).
