Woman Accused of Kicking Cops Waives Hearings

A woman accused of assaulting Bradford police officers twice in a little over a month has waived preliminary hearings in both cases.

City police say 47-year-old Nora Buterbaugh hit a man in the Country Fair parking lot on the night of October 11 and, when officers tried to arrest her near Bushnell Street, she attempted to punch one officer in the face and kicked another in the knee. While she was being put in a patrol car she fought with officers, who had to use a Taser on her. Outside the police station she kicked another officer in the knee.

On September 4 she allegedly tried to punch a police officer, and threw a large, heavy handbag at him after he told her she may be charged with theft for taking another person’s cell phone. She said she took the phone because it had images of her on it that she wanted to delete.

Buterbaugh is in McKean County Jail on $50,000 bail.
