A Unity woman has been charged with kicking a Greensburg police officer and throwing bloody clothing at two Excela Health Westmoreland Hospital nurses, city police said.

Theresa Dry, 44, is charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.

Police went to a South Maple Avenue residence about 3:30 p.m. Friday in response to a report of a woman who would not leave. Dry was walking away from the home when police arrived. They ordered her to stop, but she refused, police said.

Confronted by police, Dry became aggressive, refused to identify herself and resisted arrest on a public drunkenness charge, police said.

In the station, she kicked Patrolman Jason Gain in the upper left thigh, police said.

As police tried to get control of Dry and she struggled with them, her head struck a cell door, police said.

She was taken to the Greensburg hospital, where she continued to be disruptive and was restrained by hospital staff, authorities said.

Dry was charged with three counts of aggravated assault in connection with the incidents involving Gain and the two nurses. Police filed the two simple assault counts in the incident involving the nurses.

Dry, who has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Jan. 30 before Greensburg District Judge James Albert, was jailed in lieu of posting $10,000 bond.
