Woman is charged with hitting officer

A Laurel woman wanted for failing to appear in court to answer a theft charge has been charged with fighting a county police officer who tried to arrest her Sunday afternoon, police said.

Victoria Delores Thomas, 27, of the 200 block of Oak Road was charged with battery, resisting arrest and possession of drug paraphernalia, police said.

Officer Vincent J. Butler spotted her around 3:30 p.m. near Whiskey Bottom Road and Spring Road, police said.

Officer Butler handcuffed Ms. Thomas but she freed herself and bolted from the cruiser, the police report said. Officer Butler caught her and tried to put the handcuffs on again, but she resisted and ran off again, police said.

After Officer Butler caught her again, they struggled for his gun. The officer sprayed her with pepper mace, and he and a second officer subdued her, the police report said.
