Local woman batters police officer

Police allege a woman wearing only socks kicked an officer in the thigh as he attempted to place her under arrest for intimidation Friday, Oct. 26.

Sara J. Hancken, 32, 5900 block of North Indiana 39, Lebanon, was formally charged with class D felony intimidation and class A misdemeanor battery after the 5:44 p.m. incident at a home in the 800 block of North Park Drive, according to court records.

Officers were responding to a complaint of “a drunk person trespassing in a residence,” Lebanon Police Department Captain Jeff Warrick said in his arrest report.

Hancken was found in the basement, “naked except for her socks” and “carrying a quart bottle of an alcoholic beverage,” Warrick said.

He and Officer Kevin Allen both ordered Hancken to clothe herself, but she “took a gulp of the beverage” and said officers could not make her leave.

Told to get dressed and leave, Hancken pushed Warrick in the chest and said with an expletive “I’m not ready to leave.”

After Hancken allegedly twice told Warrick she was going to assault him, while making no effort to clothe herself, Warrick placed her under arrest for intimidation and handcuffed her.

As the person who called police tried to find something for Hancken to wear, Hancken kicked backward, grazing Warrick’s right thigh, he said. He was not injured. Told she would then also be arrested for battery, Hancken tried to again kick Warrick, but he “carried her to the floor.”

Allen and Hancken carried a resisting Hancken to a police car, then took her to Witham Memorial Hospital’s emergency room because of her apparent state of intoxication.

She was handcuffed to a gurney because she allegedly threatened other officers; Hancken’s blood alcohol content was .29 percent, more than three times Indiana’s legal limit for intoxication.

Hancken was arraigned Monday, Oct. 29, in Superior Court I, where a not guilty plea was entered and her trial set for March 4. At press time, she was being held on $550 cash or $5,000 surety bond at the Boone County Jail.
