A Radcliff woman, wanted on 10 warrants in connection with charges over a four-year period, was arrested Monday night by Radcliff police and now faces even more charges.
Laquetta Parker, 28, was found by Radcliff Police Department officers around 8:30 p.m. Monday. An arrest citation said officers called her by name but she continued to walk away.
When officers tried to take her into custody, she attempted to pull away with both arms as they tried to put handcuffs on her, the citation said. When she was brought to the Hardin County Detention Center, she reportedly coughed up phlegm on two occasions and spit in the face of an Elizabethtown Police Department officer assisting in her arrest, according to the citation.
She now is charged with a Class D felony of third-degree assault of a police or probation officer – non-communicable body fluid, punishable by one to five years in prison, if convicted.
She also is charged with misdemeanor second-degree fleeing or evading police on foot; possession of marijuana; resisting arrest and second-degree criminal mischief after police said she “pulled on and kicked” a police vehicle door, causing damage to the door and door handle.
Parker already faced charges from warrants citing theft by unlawful taking of an automobile of more than $500 and less than $10,000 and leaving the scene of an accident, failure to render aid or assistance.
According to a warrant, she took a 1997 Chevrolet Blazer from someone at the Fort Knox Inn on Aug. 19, 2019.
She is being held in lieu of multiple bonds based on previous warrants and Monday night’s arrest. She is to appear May 22 in Hardin District Court.
