A 22-year-old Darien woman hit a man over the head with a beer bottle at a local bar, left the scene, refused to get out of her Jeep when police stopped her, spat on an officer, threatened an officer and was charged with resisting arrest, police said.
Darien police described what happened with this account, including accusations not proven in court:
At 9:01 p.m. on Friday, police were called to Chez Ernie’s Café at 21 Tokeneke Road.
When they arrived, a man said he had been hit over the head with the bottle by a woman he didn’t know for a reason he also didn’t know. She left the bar, got into a gray Jeep and drove away.
Other police officers found the woman, Kendra Fitzpatrick, 21 of Hollister Lane in a gray Jeep parked not far from Ernie’s.
At first, she wouldn’t get out of the Jeep. When she did, she threatened to kill the officers.
She told police that she hit the man with the bottle because he was making fun of her.
While officers were talking to her, she tried to walk away several times, despite being told that she wasn’t free to do that. When an officer finally tried to physically stop her from leaving, she “became physically combative,” police said in an announcement about the arrest. Police physically restrained her.
As officers struggled to restrain her, she intentionally spat on one of them.
Police charged her with breach of peace and resisting arrest. She was released on a $250 bond. Fitzpatrick is scheduled to appear March 11 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
