Woman given probation after damaging YSO cruiser and assaulting deputies

YORK – A 19-year-old woman from Kansas City, Mo., has been sentenced to probation for three felonies in a case where she was accused of assaulting deputies with the York County Sheriff’s Department and damaging a cruiser.

Angelique Herrington was also sentenced for an additional felony after earlier failing to appear for a hearing in York County District Court before Judge James Stecker.

According to court documents, a deputy with the York County Sheriff’s Department conducted a traffic stop, in the middle of the night, on South Lincoln Ave.

Another deputy arrived to assist and the female passenger said she was Brianna Herrick but could not provide a date of birth. Officers said she tried to walk away from the deputies and they handcuffed her.

Deputies said in court documents she resisted their efforts to place her in the back seat of a patrol unit, kicking deputies in the legs and groin. She also struck a deputy in the head with her handcuffs and at some point a taser had to be deployed.

It was also noted there was a dent and scratches on the outside of the cruiser.

She later told a deputy and an officer with the York Police Department that her name was Angelique Herrington, according to court documents.

During a search of the vehicle, deputies found pipes, grinders, other forms of paraphernalia and an alcohol container.

She earlier pleaded not guilty to eight charges: second degree assault of an officer, a Class 2 felony; third degree assault of an officer, a Class 3A felony; third degree assault of an officer, a Class 3A felony; resisting arrest, a Class 1 misdemeanor; obstructing a peace officer, a Class 1 misdemeanor; criminal mischief, a Class 3 misdemeanor; minor in possession, a Class 3 misdemeanor; and false reporting, a Class 1 misdemeanor.

Later, she pleaded no contest to three counts of assaulting an officer – two being class 3A felonies and one being a Class 4 felony – as well as failure to appear, a Class 4 felony. The other counts were dismissed as part of a plea agreement.

She was sentenced to three years of traditional probation.
