Fairview Township woman arrested for assaulting a Police Officer

On April 30, 2013 the Fairview Township Police Department was dispatched to the 700 block of Lewisberry Road for an ambulance call where a woman had reportedly punched a window and was bleeding.

Upon police arrival, Tashia M. Russell was found to be bleeding very heavily from at least one deep laceration to her arm.  When the officer attempted to render aid to Russell she became extremely combative.  She pushed the officer and attempted to strike him in the head with a closed fist.  The officer dodged the punch and pushed Russell to the ground.  Once Russell was on the ground, the officer attempted to secure her when she bit him and spit on him.

Russell was ultimately secured and transported to Harrisburg Hospital for treatment of her laceration.  Upon being released from the hospital, Russell was charged with Aggravated Assault and transported to York County Central Processing.
