ELYRIA — An allegedly intoxicated Delbert Street woman was arrested Sunday evening after causing a disturbance at a Midway Mall restaurant, kicking an arresting officer and trying to grab another officer’s stun gun, police said.
Eva Myers, 38, is charged with assault on a law enforcement officer, a fourth-degree felony, obstructing official business, a fifth-degree felony, resisting arrest and criminal damage, both first-degree misdemeanors, and disorderly conduct by intoxication, a minor misdemeanor.
Officers Alan Kubas and James Wise were dispatched at 5:49 p.m. to Harry Buffalo at 3619 Midway Mall for a report of an intoxicated woman “causing problems at the bar,” whom the manager wanted off the property, according to a police report.
Myers and a 50-year-old Parma man were at the bar, where Myers allegedly was “causing issues with 3 (H)ispanic customers,” according to the report. Myers had multiple signs of intoxication, and told police she had been drinking since at least 1 p.m.
Myers said she was on a date with the Parma man, who offered to take her home, but she declined and said her mother would pick her up. Warned that she would be arrested for disorderly conduct if she did not leave immediately and told “approximately (three) times to leave the property,” she refused, according to a police report.
Officers attempted to place Myers under arrest, when she became “combative,” pulled her hands away and refused to be handcuffed, the police report stated. Kubas had to carry her to a police cruiser, where she kicked Wise in the right hand, allegedly grabbed Kubas’ stun gun device, and also kicked Kubas in the right side of his head, breaking his $150 prescription glasses, according to the police report.
The report did not say if the officers sought medical attention.
Myers had to be placed in a restraint chair at Lorain County Jail, the reported stated. She later posted her $14,480 bond and was released pending future court dates, according to the Lorain County Sheriff’s Office.
