Police say they went to Bushnell Street this morning to speak with 47-year-old Nora Buterbaugh, who said she took a man’s phone because he had the images and she wanted to delete them. She called police because she wanted to return the phone to its owner.
But when police told Buterbaugh she may be charged with theft she screamed obscenities and, as the police officer was leaving, threw a large heavy handbag at him. When she was being taken into custody for that she screamed louder, tried to punch the officer and continued to fight and struggle, even after being told repeatedly to stop.
Buterbaugh is charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
