Middletown Police Log: Tiverton Woman Arrested for Assault, Disorderly Conduct
The following information is based on Middletown Police Department arrest reports and do not indicate any convictions.
Susan Vanallen, 50, of 23 Main Road, Tiverton, was arrested around 9:11 p.m. Tuesday night on two misdemeanor charges of simple assault or battery and disorderly conduct.
According to the Middletown Police Department arrest report, police officers were called to Scotty's Big Dawg's Restaurant & Pub Tuesday night for a report of an unwanted party. The bartender informed police that Vanallen's keys had been taken away because she had been heavily drinking and she had become disruptive.
As police questioned Vanallen outside and escorted her back into the bar to use an ATM to withdraw cash for a cab ride home, she continuously directed profanities at the police officers, called them "fascists" and allegedly attempted to strike one police officer before she was arrested for disorderly conduct.
As she was being arrested and placed in handcuffs, she allegedly kicked a police officer in the leg and struggled to resist as police officers were placing her in the back of the cruiser.
At the police station, she allegedly continued to be disruptive in her cell by disrobing, creating hanging ropes with her clothing, and shoving clothing into the toilet, according to the police report.
