HARRINGTON, Del. --The Harrington Police Department says a woman is in police custody after resisting arrest & assaulting an officer Tuesday.

Police were called to the Salty Wave Seafood Restaurant on Clark Street after a reported assault in the parking lot. When police arrived, they came in contact with the victim and Katherine Cooper, 20, who were both seated inside of a car. The victim told police Cooper assaulted her while they were driving. As the victim continued her account to police, an officer reached into the car in an attempt to turn off the vehicle. That's when police say Cooper grabbed the officer’s arm and attempted to push the officer away. Cooper then began yelling and cursing at the officers and refused to get out of the car after being commanded to do so.

Officers attempted to take Cooper into custody, but police say she began fighting and resisting arrest with officers. She was removed from the car and after a short struggle she was taken into custody. Police continued their investigation for the assault, but the victim declined prosecution for the assault.

Cooper was transported to the Harrington Police Department for processing and was charged with Offensive Touching of a Law Enforcement Officer, Resisting Arrest, Disorderly Conduct and Underage Possession or Consumption of Alcohol. She was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 3 and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institute in default of secured bond. The officer did not sustain any injuries.
