On Dec. 16 at 10:55 p.m., police were called about a woman being pulled by her hair by a man down Main Street. They found Allanah Earley, 39, of Prospect Street at Liberty and Main streets sitting on the curb crying. She said a group of men assaulted her but wouldn’t give details, according to the report.
Police said she was highly intoxicated and kept calling officers vulgar terms and said she wanted to kick one in the crotch. When Hunter’s Ambulance arrived, Earley started to walk away, the report states. When told to return, she swung her fist at an officer’s face.

Trying to subdue her for arrest, the report says, one officer struck her several times in the back and arms and held her face on the ground as she was fighting. Police say in the cruiser she began her aggressive and unruly behavior again so officers Tased her in the back.
Throughout booking, the report says, she continued to use vulgarities.
