DELMAR, Md.- A Delmar woman is accused of assaulting a Wicomico County sheriff’s deputy while being taken into custody for drunk driving on Saturday. 

The Sheriff’s Office reported that shortly after 7 p.m. a deputy responded to a reported motor vehicle crash on the 32000 block of Downing Road in Delmar, Md. Authorities said that upon arrival, the deputy located a car in a ditch and the driver, 43-year-old Holly Marie Mills, sitting next to the car crying.

The Sheriff’s Office reported as the deputy approached Mills, she began to vomit. The deputy detected the strong odor of alcohol coming from Mills and also discovered that Mills had her 7-year-old son in the car with her, according to investigators.

Mills was unable to walk without assistance and had become argumentative and uncooperative, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Authorities said Mills attempted to assault the investigating deputy and managed to strike a second deputy who had arrived to assist. While being transported to the Sheriff’s Office, investigators said Mills attempted to assault the deputy while he was driving and repeatedly hit her head against the passenger side window of the patrol car in an apparent attempt to break it.

Investigators said a different deputy arrived with a vehicle equipped with a transport cage for the ride back to the Sheriff’s Office, during which time Mills attempted to kick that deputy through the partition.

Authorities said that once at the Sheriff’s Office, Mills refused to take any additional tests (including a breath test), refused to sign any related paperwork and continually beat on the door of the holding cell.

According to the Sheriff's Office, Mills was charged with second-degree assault, resisting arrest, driving under the influence of alcohol, and driving a vehicle while impaired by alcohol while transporting a minor. She was released on $25,000 bond.
