    A 24-year-old Garrison, N.Y. woman was charged with DUI after Middletown Police responded to a report of a disabled vehicle, possibly in a ditch, July 21 at 11:35 p.m.

    Upon arrival on Bunker Hill Road west of Route 301, an MPD officer located a black Acura occupied by Angel Arrowood with a single flat front tire. Officers said they spoke with the Arrowood and detected an odor of an alcoholic beverage on her breath, and also saw an empty bottle of vodka on the front passenger seat of the vehicle.

    Police said Arrowood became verbally abusive and refused to answer questions while being questioned. She was taken into custody after a brief struggle.

    Once secured inside the police vehicle, police said Arrowood began kicking the security screen used to separate the front and rear passenger areas.

    Officers transported Arrowood to the MPD for arrest processing. Once at the MPD, police said Arrowood became verbally abusive toward the arresting officers and refused to comply with their requests. Police said she charged at an officer and struck him in the face with a closed fist, which caused minor injury and damaged the officer’s personal property.

    Arrowood was transported to the Christiana Medical Center for evaluation. Upon release, she was charged with third offense DUI, resisting arrest, terroristic threatening and criminal mischief less than $1,000. She was committed to the Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution in default of $2,600 secured bond.
