"Her behavior was abnormal," the Oceanside police officer testified.
“I told her to stop,” said Oceanside police officer Katrina Joseph.
Jazzlyn Dorsel Nolen continued to kick at the rear windows and doors of her patrol vehicle, officer Katrina Joseph said in court today.
“It took about four officers to actually get her inside the vehicle,” officer Katrina Joseph said.
Seven weeks ago, on October 12, 2012, the officer said she responded to a radio call about a man and a woman fighting on South Freeman Street.
Officer Joseph said she did not find the man, but came upon 26-year-old Jazzlyn Dorsel Nolen alone and “screaming and yelling for no reason.” The officer said she could smell alcohol about the woman, and that she was “pacing” and “refused to obey my commands.” After Jazzlyn Dorsel Nolen allegedly began kicking at other officers who had responded to the scene, Nolen was arrested on suspicion of public intoxication.
Officer Katrina Joseph reported that the frames around two of her patrol car’s rear windows were bent and that the windows were “kicked off track.” No windows shattered, she said. It cost $983.57 to repair the vehicle, Officer Katrina Joseph said.
At the end of a hearing today, Judge Richard Mills reduced a felony vandalism charge to a misdemeanor, and dismissed the charge of public intoxication, and ordered Jazzlyn Dorsel Nolen held to answer one misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest.
Judge Mills gave the defendant some free legal advice: “Pay the city back the money before you try to plea bargain this case.” Then he set her next court date for December 19, 2012, in San Diego’s North County Superior Courthouse.
