(BEDFORD) – A Bedford woman was arrested after she got into an altercation late Thursday night.
Bedford police officers were called to the 1400 block of 19th Street at 11:53 p.m. after a report of an intoxicated woman out of control.
According to Bedford Police Chief Terry Moore, when officers arrived they spoke with the caller and 43-year-old Kristy Fountain.
“While speaking with Ms. Fountain, she appeared to be extremely intoxicated and uncooperative and refused to stop yelling and screaming at the complainant,” says Chief Moore. “Officers suggested she find a different place to stay for the night and offered to transport her to a safe place of her choice but she refused. Officers asked her to go to her room and to stop harassing the caller.”
Then at 12:55 a.m. this morning, officers were called back to the home after a report of a battery.
Officers arrived and spoke to the original caller who said after officers left the first time he tried to get some sleep, but Fountain stayed up and was making a lot of noise in the house.
“The complainant said he got up to see what was going on and found Kristy trying to make some food to eat, so he tried to help her,” Chief Moore added. “While in the kitchen he was putting away the trash and Ms. Fountain grabbed a box from the trash and struck him in the face which caused pain and discomfort. The complainant wanted to file domestic battery charges.”
Fountain was arrested, but when officers attempted to handcuff her, she refused to cooperate.
“Officers had to forcibly place handcuffs on her and forcibly place her in our police car,” Chief Moore added.
Fountain was arrested on charges of domestic battery and resisting arrest and taken to the Lawrence County Jail.
