REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. (WBOC/AP)- A woman is accused of assaulting three people outside a Rehoboth Beach bar and then fighting a police officer who tried to stop her.           

Twenty-one-year-old Michelle Villa of Wilmington was arrested Sunday and charged with one count of second-degree felony assault resulting in injury to a law enforcement officer, one count of felony resisting arrest and the following misdemeanors: two counts of third-degree assault, one count of offensive touching, and one count of disorderly conduct.

Rehoboth Beach said that just before 11 p.m., officers responded to the fight and one of the officers struggled with Villa before she was handcuffed.           

Police said the officer was arresting someone else in the fight when he noticed Villa had freed one of her hands and was attempting to escape. The officer received minor injuries in the ensuing fight before Villa was detained, according to police. 

Police said that during the incident, Villa assaulted three other people, two of which received minor injuries. Villa received minor injuries as well.           

Following her arrest on the aforementioned charges, Villa was committed to Sussex Correction Institution in default of $14,200 secured bail.

Court records show Villa was arrested earlier this month on charges including riot. The circumstances surrounding that arrest are unclear.
