A woman who refused to leave the county Social Services office until she “got some electricity” was arrested after fighting with deputies Thursday.
Teresa Michelle Troy, 42, of 2607 Tom Sessions Rd., was held under $5,000 secured bond, according to detention center records. She was charged with malicious conduct, resisting an officer, second degree trespass, and two counts of assault on a government official.
The sheriff’s office said in a report that deputies were called to the Department of Social Services at 9:22 a.m. to remove Troy. She had been asked to leave DSS after becoming disruptive and combative, the report said, and refused to exit the building until she “got some electricity.”
When a deputy told her to leave the property, the report said Troy again refused. The deputy called for backup after warning Troy that she could be arrested.
As she was being taken into custody, the report said, Troy allegedly kicked one deputy multiple times, and tried to bite him. She then is accused of spitting in another deputy’s eyes.
Deputies used pepper spray to subdue Troy, the report said. After she was treated at Columbus Regional, she was taken into custody. The deputies were not injured.
