W.Va. woman jailed on police assault charges

Served 2 outstanding warrants

CUMBERLAND — An early-morning attempted breaking and entering of a Race Street residence Friday led to the arrest of a Ridgeley, W.Va., woman who allegedly assaulted the arresting officers and attempted to  kick out the rear window a police cruiser.

Cumberland Police responded to the complaint in the 200 block of Race Street at about 12:10 a.m., where they found a woman screaming and cursing outside the residence. A complainant was also trying to hold the woman down on the ground when the officers arrived.

The suspect, Whitney Nicole Hollingsworth, 24, then broke free and struck the complainant in the face with her elbow.

As officers approached her to make the arrest, Hollingsworth allegedly swung at the officers before she ran a short distance and was taken into custody.

During the arrest, Hollingsworth allegedly became combative, attempted to kick out a window of the police cruiser and then spit on the arresting officers. She also allegedly kicked an officer during the arrest processing.

Charged with two counts each of assault of police, resisting arrest, second-degree assault and disorderly conduct, Hollingsworth was also served with two active arrest warrants for failure to appear in court in Allegany County.

Following a bond hearing, she was jailed on $10,000 bond at the Allegany County Detention Center awaiting bail review in district court.

Court records show Holingsworth was arrested last February after she allegedly robbed a taxi driver on West Industrial Boulevard. She allegedly tried to kick out windows of the Cumberland Police cruiser when she was taken into custody in that incident.
