A Carnegie woman faces criminal charges after allegedly kicking an Indiana Borough police officer.

Katlyn Marie Rhodes, 21, of 15 First St. was charged Friday with one count each of aggravated assault, simple assault, criminal trespass, resisting arrest, public drunkenness and three counts of disorderly conduct. She was arraigned by Indiana District Judge Guy Haberl and released on $10,000 bail.

According to the criminal complaint filed by Indiana police, Patrolman Michael Rayko was writing parking tickets in the 600 block of Philadelphia Street when he was called to assist an employee of the Coney Bar in trying to get a woman to leave the bar.

Police said Rhodes became belligerent and disorderly, screaming obscenities at Rayko. Rhodes allegedly continued to yell even after the officer warned her she would be arrested for disorderly conduct.

As Rayko attempted to take her into custody, Rhodes resisted arrest and continued yelling, eventually kicking Rayko in his left knee with her high heel, police said.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled Dec. 16 before Haberl.
