Woman accused of resisting, alcohol offenses

From Local Sources


HUNTINGBURG — A woman was booked into jail Tuesday on preliminary charges related to a weekend incident in Huntingburg.

The Huntingburg Police Department responded at 7:20 p.m. Sunday to a call ultimately found to involve a juvenile who was cited for minor consuming before being released to the custody of a family member.

While on that call, police allege, an impaired Brooke L. Wraley, 18, 403 E. Second Ave., Huntingburg, came to the scene staggering before trying to walk away. Wraley allegedly refused commands to stop and then cursed at and fought with officers taking her into custody.

Wraley allegedly spit on officers and EMTs at the scene of the arrest, then became physical with medical staff after being taken to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center, reportedly pushing a nurse and spitting in that nurse’s hair.

Authorities booked Wraley into the Dubois County Security Center at 2:10 p.m. Tuesday on preliminary charges of Level 6 felony battery on law enforcement and misdemeanor resisting law enforcement, minor consuming and public intoxication.
