Highland woman accused of kicking Madison County deputy
A Highland woman was charged Tuesday after police said she kicked a Madison County sheriff's deputy while her fiance was being arrested.
Deputies responded to reports of a domestic disturbance at 3:25 a.m. Sunday in the parking lot of a business in the 9000 block of Illinois 162 in Troy, Capt. T. Mike Dixon said in a news release.
Deputies learned the couple were involved in a "physical altercation," Dixon said.
Melissa M. Bailey, 27, of 3254 Daiber Lane, was arrested in connection with domestic battery.
Christopher N. Williamson, 34, of the same address, was arrested in connection with battery.
"Bailey physically resisted arrest and kicked a deputy as she was being placed in a squad car," Dixon said.
The deputy was not seriously injured, Dixon said.
Bailey and Williamson posted bail on Sunday and were released from the Madison County Jail.
Earlier this month, a woman was accused of spitting on and striking a Shiloh police officer and hitting a pregnant woman.
Reflaye Williams, of the 1100 block of Langley Drive, was charged Feb. 1 with two counts of aggravated battery to a peace officer, aggravated battery to a pregnant person and three counts of domestic battery.
Police responded Jan. 31 to a domestic disturbance call at her address.
Williams remains in the St. Clair County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail, according to a Shiloh Police Department news release issued Tuesday.
