Police Win Battle with Angry Woman

(La Porte, IN) - A La Porte woman put up a major fight but came out the losing party in a confrontation with police. Officers were called twice on Monday evening to the 500 block of Pulaski Street on separate reports of a disturbance and a burglary in progress.


Police say an arrest was being made when 60-year-old Ann Konieczny walked over from next door and began yelling at the officers.  Despite several warnings, she refused to quiet down and was told she was under arrest. She was then escorted to the ground and handcuffed, though not before a struggle where she nearly burned one of the officers with a cigarette.


Officers had to drag Konieczny after making her body go limp, then wrapping one of her legs around a pole after kicking one of the officers. Eventually, authorities succeeded in getting her into the police vehicle.


Konieczny has been charged in La Porte Circuit Court with Battery against a Police Officer, Resisting Arrest and Disorderly Conduct.


Robert Allerton, 57, has been arrested for Resisting Arrest and Public Intoxication.
