Charges in Water Park Disturbance

(La Porte, IN) - A La Porte woman allegedly made quite a scene with her mouth and choice of words at a church water park.  Jessica Foster is charged in LaPorte Circuit Court with Disorderly Conduct, Battery and Resisting Law Enforcement.


According to court documents, Foster on June 9 walked into Bethany Lutheran Church demanding a drink of water.  She walked out, vomited on the sidewalk and went to the water park across the street from the church where she began playing in the water next to a large group of children, the documents revealed.


She was asked to leave the park but refused then hopped a fence when police officers showed up.  Police said she also began yelling profanities at officers as they drew closer.  Then after a struggle to place her inside a squad car, Foster spit in the face of one of the officers.


Eventually, police said she was placed in leg restraints to keep her from continuing to resist arrest.  She was taken to the hospital where her use of a foul mouth at high volume continued and she tried biting hospital security officers, court documents revealed.


Foster is also charged in La Porte Superior Court #3 with public intoxication and public nudity for alleged behavior a short distance away from the church the previous week.
