A Fayette County woman is charged with assault for allegedly kicking a police officer who was investigating a report of counterfeit money.

Kimberly Diane Mackey, 40, of 10 Kennedy St., Republic, is charged by Uniontown Police with aggravated assault, simple assault, resisting arrest, driving under the influence, disorderly conduct, possession, possession of drug paraphernalia, public drunkenness and harassment.

In a criminal complaint, police said an officer was questioning Mackey in connection with a report she had used a counterfeit $20 bill at a gas station on Connellsville Street on Friday when Mackey told them she was unaware it was fake.

When the officer asked her to show him her other money, Mackey pushed and kicked the officer, according to the complaint. Two more officers arrived and used a Taser on Mackey but it was ineffective, according to the report.

Mackey, who according to the report was trying to leave in a car when they first arrived, was ultimately taken into custody. Police said she was in possession of a clear plastic baggie that tested positive for cocaine.

Mackey is free on $30,000 bail. She faces a preliminary hearing 2:10 p.m. March 26 before Uniontown District Judge Michael Metros.
