DELBARTON – A Delbarton woman arrested on trespassing charges has been accused of allegedly attempting to bite an officer during arrest.
Dessirae Lynn Hall, 30 from Delbarton, was arrested Thursday, September 29, on misdemeanor charges related to trespassing, battery, two counts of battery on an officer and two counts of obstructing.
According to a criminal complaint, the arrest was made by Dep. M. Lendearo and Cpl. N. Mines of the Mingo County Sheriff’s Department.
The complaint states that officers arrived at the Raymond Toler residence after a 911 call was placed due to Hall refusing numerous warnings to leave the Toler residence.
When officers arrived, they allegedly told Hall to leave the residence. The complaint states that in response, Hall cursed the officers and refused to leave.
While officers were in the residence, Hall allegedly became combative with Toler and had to be restrained.
After being placed in the cruiser, Hall allegedly began to kick and attempted to kick out a side window of the cruiser as well as attempted to remove her handcuffs. The complaint explains that Hall had to be physically restrained until Cpl. Mines arrived with shackles.
While deputy Lendearo was waiting on Cpl. Mines to arrive, Hall allegedly attempted to bite the deputy. While being restrained with the shackles, Hall continued to fight the officers, and kicked Cpl. Mines as well as hit Lendearo with her head.
While being processed, the defendant refused to supply officers with any information necessary to complete arrest documents. However, the complaint explains that officers had Hall’s information due to prior investigations.
Hall was transported to the Southwestern Regional jail located in Holden, W.Va. and was arraigned before Mingo County Magistrate Barry Marcum.
