|Hopkinsville woman accused of punching police officer|
A Hopkinsville woman is accused of assaulting a police officer yesterday.
Arrested around 3:15pm was 31-year old Georgina Washington of Hopkinsville, who reportedly called the Emergency Communications Center and cussed at dispatchers before showing up at the Hopkinsville Police Department headquarters to report a crime.
When an officer explained to her that what she was describing was not a crime, she allegedly began screaming and asking police why they brought her there. The incident reportedly lasted for several minutes before backup was called and that’s when Washington allegedly walked up to Lieutenant Jeff Alexander and started punching him.
She allegedly kept fighting with officers as she was being arrested and was charged with assault of a police officer, disorderly conduct and falsely reporting an incident.
