When Angela Umpierre walked into the lobby of the Norwalk Police station early Tuesday morning she had no idea she wouldn't be able to walk out. The desk sergeant recognized the 20 year old and hit a button to lock down the lobby. Umpierre tried to run out and kicked the locked doors.
Police say they had a warrant out on her because of her behavior last week: Among other things, she kicked an EMS worker.
On Jan. 3, police took the Roodner Court resident to Norwalk Hospital for evaluation when her mother reported that she was out of control. Umpierre allegedly became combative at the ER, kicking a bag of garbage, doors and the EMS worker. She was place in restraints and put in a 72-hour psych hold at the hospital. While at the hospital she tested positive for marijuana and police obtained a warrant against her.
She was charged with assault on an EMS officer, illegal possession near a school, two counts of criminal mischief, two counts of interfering with an officer, possession of a controlled substance, disorderly conduct and breach of peace. Bond was set at $50,000.
Also from the police blotter:
A disturbance at the High Road School Monday morning resulted in the arrest of a 17-year-old boy. He had been given a time-out for being disrespectful and threw a chair across the room, according to the report. Two teachers escorted him to the school's seclusion room. When police arrived he was cursing. He was transported to police headquarters for throwing the chair and charged with disorderly conduct and intent to commit assault.
