Police: Dish thrower resists arrest, pepper sprayed in patrol car
Lufkin, Texas (KETK) — A woman was arrested by Lufkin officers after she allegedly threw dishes at her boyfriend and resisted arrest multiple times on Monday.
According to the Lufkin Police Department, law enforcement was dispatched to the 1800 block of Keltys Street on reports of a disturbance in progress. When officers arrived, a man told police his girlfriend had chased him out of the house during an argument and was throwing kitchen plates at him.
After seeing shards of ceramic on the road, authorities attempted to speak with the woman, but she would not come to the door. At this time, the victim gave officers a key to the home. They were able to enter after learning the suspect, Robin T. Hall, 28, of Lufkin, had outstanding warrants in Angelina County for theft by check and Dallas County for fraud.
Hill was allowed to make a few calls to get someone to pick up her children. After the calls, the suspect was asked to get out of the children's view to be handcuffed, however, she instead walked toward a back room. The officer immediately cuffed her and began to lead Hill out of the home.
As police were taking the woman out of the house, she began pushing against one of the officers. He warned her to stop and begin walking. She did not comply and fell to the ground at the front door. After many attempts to carry her to the patrol car, the woman was eventually placed inside the vehicle and belted.
While en route to the Angelina County Jail, Hill became out of control, took her seat belt off and started kicking at the door panel, stating she was going to break the window. At this time, the officer used pepper spray and the suspect quit kicking.
The suspect was booked into jail for assault family violence, resisting arrest, theft by check warrant and a fraud warrant. Her bail was set at $4,500.
Hill's Angelina County Jail records show a handful of assault charges dating back to 2007.
