Comments Off on Traverse City woman, 31, accused of assault, possession of Methamphetamine

TRAVERSE CITY — A Traverse City woman was jailed after authorities said she assaulted her roommate, a friend, a paramedic and a nurse.

Traverse City police officers responded to a 911 call about a domestic assault at an Eighth Street home. A 45-year-old man told central dispatchers Friday at 7:22 p.m. that his roommate, 31, was “freaked out” and throwing things, said Traverse City police Capt. Jim Bussell.

The woman threw a cordless drill at the man, a stereo at a woman and a big-screen TV, plates and glasses. She also is suspected of putting a 4- to 5-foot hole in the home’s wall. The roommate estimated she caused more than $1,000 of damage.

Officers suspected she was under the influence of alcohol and methamphetamine, Bussell said. She was in possession of suspected marijuana and methamphetamine.

The woman attempted to bite a paramedic who transported her to Munson Medical Center, Bussell said. She was jailed after her hospitalization. Officers reported her blood-alcohol content was 0.22 percent.

Officers will request she be charged with five counts of felonious assault, possession of a controlled substance, malicious destruction of property and two counts of resisting arrest.
