Around 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 10, the Indiana Borough Police were responding to the 600 Block of Washington Street to take a report of criminal mischief to a vehicle. However, while they were on scene with that victim, 21-year-old Alaina Whitaker of Chantilly, Virginia, approached an officer and began to act belligerent and disorderly while being intoxicated. Whitaker was taken into custody and released to a sober adult.
That sober adult later approached the officer and requested that Whitaker be removed from the residence, as she was then assaulting someone inside. Whitaker was observed to be assaulting a female. OC spray, also known as pepper spray, had to be used in order to subdue her as she was resisting arrest. Whitaker was lodged in the Indiana County Jail and was charged in a criminal complaint with simple assault, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, harassment and public drunkenness.
