Dover woman allegedly kicked cop in the crotch
A Dover Township woman was charged after police say she kicked an officer in the crotch, documents state.
Taylor Nicole Grim, 20, of 2140 Andover Road, allegedly drove off after hitting a car in York City, police said. When officers later found her and looked in her car in West Manchester Township, she kicked and punched an officer and became "combative," according to court documents.
York City Police charged Grim with three counts of aggravated assault and one count of criminal mischief, among other charges, documents state.
Allegations: Shortly after midnight on March 12, a York City officer was flagged down in front of 336 S. Queen St. A woman there told police that a maroon SUV had just hit two parked cars and fled south on South Queen Street, police said.
Damage could be seen on the two vehicles, a Mitsubishi sedan and a Buick SUV.
The officer initially was unable to find the striking vehicle, but he was able to find a piece of its bumper and a black fog-light housing, documents state.
At 1:45 a.m., York County 911 received a call to check the welfare of someone in a car in the parking lot of Lowe's in Delco Plaza, in West Manchester Township. An officer from West Manchester Township Police responded and found that the vehicle matched the description of the car that had hit the two parked ones, according to police.
About 30 minutes later, the York City officer who responded to the initial crash showed up at Delco Plaza, police said.
Delco Plaza: The vehicle in the lot had damage to the passenger-side front bumper and had left the matching piece of bumper at the scene, charging documents allege.
The fog light left at the scene matched the one left on the vehicle, police said.
The driver of the vehicle, identified as Grim, was seated in the back of a West Manchester Township Police car, not handcuffed, documents state. Grim told police that someone had hit her vehicle while she was driving, according to police.
The York City officer told Grim that her car had been involved in a hit-and-run in the city, documents state. Police say the officer got into her car and found an expired insurance and registration card. Grim then rolled down the window of the patrol car she was in and started yelling at officers for checking her car, police said.
The York City officer had gone to his car to fill out an accident report when he saw Grim trying to open the rear door of the patrol car through the open window, documents state.
The West Manchester officer asked her to step out of the car, and she refused, police said.
"(The officer) tried to get her out of the vehicle, then Grim became violently combative, kicking (the officer) in the testicles and punching him," charging documents state.
Several police officers from West Manchester attempted to restrain Grim as she kicked and fought, police said.
The York City officer exited his car and placed Grim's left leg behind her right knee and pulled her right leg toward her body to prevent her from kicking again, documents state.
The West Manchester officer took Grim to central booking, where she continued to be "angry and combative," police said. Sheriff's deputies at central booking had to place her in a restraint chair, charging documents allege.
During attempts to restrain her, she kicked another officer in the chest three times and in the arm once, police said.
Grim was arraigned on the charges that morning, and she was remanded to York County Prison in lieu of $50,000 bail and remained there Friday. She does not have an attorney listed.
Grim's preliminary hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. March 24 at District Judge Ronald J. Haskell Jr.'s office.
