COVINGTON, Ga. – A Conyers woman was arrested early Tuesday morning after causing a disturbance at a local bar and kicking a Covington Police Department officer.
According to the CPD incident report, officers responded to the Depot Sports Bar on Emory Street just before 1:30 a.m. Oct. 10 on a report of an argument.
When Officer Rory Barber arrived, he reportedly observed a man and woman outside the bar involved in a verbal altercation, with the female yelling profanities.
As Barber exited his patrol car, the female got into the passenger side of a vehicle in the parking lot. Barber made contact with the male, who stated that he did not know what was going on.
When Barber asked the female, later identified as 24-year-old Jessica Moles, to open the door and speak to him, she reportedly refused. Barber then opened the passenger door of the vehicle and attempted to speak with her.
When asked what was going on, Moles reportedly began to get belligerent and stated that she had a badge too and that she was a Marshall. After she refused to exit the vehicle, Barber grabbed her arm to get her out of the car. Barber reported that Moles physically resisted the attempt to remove her from the vehicle and kicked him in the leg.
According to the report, Moles had to be physically restrained by other officers in order to be placed in handcuffs. Once she was out of the vehicle, she became combative again and had to be taken to the ground for officers to gain control of her. She reportedly kicked Barber in the legs again as she was being walked to his patrol car.
A bar employee told police Moles became irate with the staff when they attempted to move her drink. She reportedly attempted to fight several people in the bar when they asked her to leave.
Moles was transported to the Newton County Law Enforcement Center charged with obstruction of an officer and disorderly conduct.
