Police on Monday afternoon arrested a 37-year-old Darien woman on multiple felony charges after she kicked an officer and otherwise caused problems when she was stopped on her bicycle in town.
Adaoibi Kurylov, of 84 Camp Ave., Darien was charged with assault of public safety personnel and interfering with an officer.

New Canaan Police described what happened in this account, including accusations not proven in court:
At about 4:48 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 15, an officer on patrol saw Kurylov riding a bicycle on South Avenue.
The officer knew from prior contacts with her that an active paperless re-arrest warrant had been issued in connection with a previous incident in New Canaan, and followed her.
As the officer did so, Kurylov was seen committing multiple traffic violations, such as not obeying a traffic signal and failure to indicate a turn using hand signals.
She finally was stopped downtown on Main Street near Burtis Avenue. On taking her into custody for the active warrant, she kicked the arresting officer, was uncooperative during the booking process and interfered with officers in the booking area when they tried to fingerprint her.
She also was charged with second-degree failure to appear in court, in connection with the earlier incident.
Police released the woman on $5,000 bond for each set of charges and scheduled to appear Jan. 25 in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
The same woman had been arrested in New Canaan in September after refusing to cooperate with police following complaints that she wasn’t following state laws regarding cycling in public roadways.
She also was arrested last month by Darien Police and charged with third-degree assault, according to Connecticut Judicial Branch records. Details of that arrest were not immediately available.
As NewCanaanite.com has reported, the same woman — a medical doctor — earlier this year sued Greenwich Hospital after the hospital fired her, court records show, ostensibly for filing a false sexual harassment complaint.
According to public documents on file with the New York State Unified Court System, the same woman earlier had brought a complaint against Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, saying she had been fired from its residency program in pathology because of her race and/or national origin. She is from Nigeria, according to court records.
