Police were called to a North Main Street home on Saturday for a report of a fight involving 21-year-old Amanda Amell. The police officer told her to stay where she was and he could go talk to the other person, according to court papers. But she went out the back door of the house and then started walking up the driveway of the other house. The officer warned her numerous times to stop and told her she’d be arrested if she didn’t.
When she continued and the officer attempted to take her into custody she refused to put her hands behind her back, so the officer took her to the ground. She managed to slip out of the handcuffs and had to be re-cuffed. Then she kicked the officer in the shin and attempted to kick him several other times. Once in the patrol car, she kicked the partition, the window glass and the door panels numerous times doing an unknown amount of monetary damage.
Amell’s bail is set at $10,000. She is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Thursday in McKean County Central Court.
