Woman Allegedly Assaults Police Officer Over Blue White Weekend

A West Chester woman has been charged with felony assault after allegedly attacking a police officer and threatening EMS staff over the weekend.

According to court documents, the incident began with Taylor Fox, 18, being treated at the first aid station outside Beaver Stadium shortly before 7 p.m. Saturday. Court documents do not detail why Fox was in need of first aid, but the affidavit of probable cause says she passed out at one point and was behaving very erratically.

First aid staff reportedly called for police after Fox resisted treatment, forcing them to place her in handcuffs. Police found Fox crying and refusing to cooperate, but removed her handcuffs to allow her to go to the restroom. When she did not return, police reportedly found her unconscious on one of the toilets.

First aid staff decided to take Fox to the Mount Nittany Medical Center for evaluation, and asked a police officer to accompany her during the ride to the hospital. During the trip, Fox reportedly kept trying to remove the leather straps that held her down and threatened to kill the EMS staff transporting her.

Once they arrived at the hospital, police and EMS staff say that Fox broke free of her restraints and kicked the supervising police officer. Fox has since been charged with aggravated assault, and has been released on $10,000 unsecured bail while awaiting a Wednesday preliminary hearing.
