the female threw her shoes at the police car. The female was later identified as Emily Beth Creegan, 28, of Cumberland. Officers observed Creegan’s vehicle parked partially on the shoulder and partially in the East Main Street roadway. While investigating at the scene, officers learned that she had been driving home and suspected she was impaired. Following field sobriety tests, officers found probable cause to believe Creegan was impaired. Officers placed Creegan under arrest and transported her to police headquarters without incident. While reviewing state mandated paperwork for the DUI arrest, Creegan became agitated, began yelling, and began aggressively moving items on the desk. Officers then attempted to place her in a holding cell pending completion of the paperwork. Upon being escorted to the cell, Creegan began falling down deliberately. When officers attempted to lift her back up and escort her to the cell, she pushed officers away. She began to struggle with officers and grabbed the on-duty PCO while officers struggled to get her in the cell. Despite the struggle, officers were able to place her in the holding cell. Creegan was charged with driving under the influence and driving while impaired. Additional charges are pending.
