Three women were charged after a large-scale fight involving 20 people broke out in Sandusky on Friday.
Officers were dispatched to the 900 block of Hayes Avenue for a fight involving multiple people, according to a Sandusky police report. About 20 people were yelling and screaming at each other when officers arrived but most of the crowd dispersed shortly thereafter.
The report states one of the individuals who remained at the scene — Ariene D. Sutherland, 29 — continued to shout and carry on in front of officers. She was cited for disorderly conduct and released.
A few minutes later, officers circled back through the area and found another large group of individuals swearing and yelling, the report said. Two of the woman were fighting each other and fell to the ground but were separated by police.
The two women were identified as Jamara N. Brown, 19, and Tatyana J. Kincade, 19. When one of the officers stepped in to break up the fight between the two woman, Kincade allegedly kicked the officer in the thigh. The officer responded by deploying pepper spray.
Brown was taken into custody and charged with underage consumption, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct while intoxicated.
Kincade told authorities she was having trouble breathing and was taken to a nearby hospital for evaluation. While at the hospital, Kincade, who appeared intoxicated, admitted to officers she had consumed alcohol. She was charged with underage consumption disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, assault and then taken to the county jail.
In addition to the charges stemming from the fight, Kincade was issued several bench warrants that were on file for her out of Sandusky and Perkins Township.
