Police said in an affidavit they stopped to check on Allen in October as she was walking eastbound on East High Street. The police said in an affidavit it appeared she was having trouble walking.

They said when they approached her she fell down into a sitting position and told police her house was on a street that did not exist.

“Officers asked the female if she was OK but it was very hard to understand her,” the affidavit says. “Her words were very slurred and it appeared she was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.”

Police called a medic who arrived to take Allen to the hospital, according to the affidavit, but when she was put on a stretcher she allegedly began giving them trouble.

“When Ms. Allen got onto the bed, she raised her foot and kicked Officer Freeman in the chest and continued to yell and scream,” the affidavit says.

Also, the affidavit says while heading to the hospital she began spitting on medics and when she arrived allegedly bit Officer Freeman’s right hand causing injury.
