(DPS) — On Sunday, Oct. 11, 2020, at about 12:30 a.m., an officer was conducting routine patrol in Chalan Kanoa when she noticed a group of individuals walking on the roadway.

The officer pulled over to notify the individuals to utilize the sidewalk. As the officer was talking to the group, one individual struck the officer’s vehicle.

When the officer got down her vehicle, the suspect began screaming profanities toward the officer and walked up to her, repeatedly striking her and scratching the officer in the face.

 At this time family members and another officer on the scene managed to restrain the suspect in handcuffs. The suspect was later identified as Tanella Peter.

Peter was placed at the back of the vehicle as the officer educated the group on the hazards of walking on the roadway.

Peter continued to kick and scream at the back of the vehicle before she was advised of her Miranda rights and was arrested for assault and battery.

Peter was brought to Kanoa Resort for clearance before being transported to the Department of Corrections where she was booked and detained.

On Oct. 12, 2020, at about 6:47 p.m., Superior Court Judge Joseph N. Camacho issued a Rule-5 for Peter for the charge of assault and battery with bail set at $10,000. Peter was served while  detained at Corrections.
