York City woman accused of drunkenly fighting cop
A York City woman drunkenly attempting to interfere with another woman's arrest found herself in handcuffs, according to police.
Liquetta Liprice Miller, 26, struck an officer who was trying to handle a fight outside a bar early Thursday, Jan. 4, according to police.
Miller, of the 500 block of Cooper Place, is charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.
Fight: Officers were sent to Pandora's Box in the 400 block of East Market Street just after 1 a.m. Thursday for a report of 10 people fighting, court documents state.
When police arrived, an officer attempted to arrest another woman when Miller interfered, police said.
She was pushed and told to get back, but police say she continued yelling and attempting to intercede.
An officer tried placing Miller under arrest, but she struck him several times and hit another officer as well, court documents allege.
Miller was pushed to the ground, where the officer tried taking control of her, but she continued hitting and kicking him, police said. She was shot with a Taser and then taken into custody, according to charging documents.
Police say during the entire encounter, Miller had slurred speech and poor coordination.
Miller was taken to central booking where she was arraigned Thursday morning. She was sent to York County Prison in lieu of $20,000 bail.
She does not have an attorney listed.
Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for Jan. 18 at District Judge Linda Williams' office.
