Woman arrested following assault

NEW CASTLE — A New Castle woman was arrested for allegedly assaulting a police officer during a disturbance outside of a bar.

Police charged Esther Raquel Wilson, 26, of 801 W. North St., with aggravated and simple assault, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, harassment and public drunkenness in connection with the incident, which allegedly occurred around 7:30 p.m. Friday in the parking lot of a tavern on South Jefferson Street.

Police were called to the bar regarding a disturbance.  Several people were yelling outside and a woman identified as Wilson was screaming and yelling after police told her several times to stop. According to police reports, as one officer took her by the arm to take her into custody, she pushed his hand away and hit him in the face. Police then took her to the ground, handcuffed her and placed her in a cruiser. There, they said, she screamed and kicked at the window. Police said she continued screaming and yelling while she was at the police station. Officers said she was placed in a restraint chair until her arraignment before District Judge David B. Rishel, who set her jail bond at $5,000 bond.

Are you concerned enough about the Heartbleed bug on the Internet to change all of your social media and website passwords?

Yes. It’s always a good idea to change passwords regularly anyway. I just have so many, I’m not sure where to start.
No. From what I’ve read, companies are still trying to figure out how to fix the flaw. The bad guys will just have access to my NEW passwords, too.
Not sure, but I blame Al Gore. He invented the Internet, right? How’s he going to get us out of this mess?
