A Middlefield woman was arrested earlier this month after becoming belligerent and argumentative with police, according to Middletown Police.
On Jan. 6, Carolyn Rynaski, 26, of 527 Main Street, was charged with interfering with police after she was pulled over on Prospect Street in Middletown.
According to a report, at approximately 3:30 a.m., Rynaski was driving along North Main Street when she stopped her minivan at several locations for a short period of time in an area considered by police to be a high crime area.
The vehicle's front license plate was missing and when police pulled Rynaski over she "appeared overly nervous and was fidgeting" and the officer detected the odor of alcohol on her breath, the report says.
Rynaski told police she was dropping off a friend but when asked to exit the vehicle she initially refused and then became beligerent and argumentative with police, according to the report.
At one point, police say, Rynaski tried to shove her way back into the minivan at which time she was placed under arrest.
During a search of the vehicle, police reported finding several open bottles of alcohol under the driver's seat.
Police also found a small amount of cash, numerous pieces of plastic baggies consistent with narcotics packaging and the prescription drug Suboxone, a medication commonly prescribed to opiate users, inside the vehicle, the report says.
Rynaski's bond was set at $5,000. She's due in court on Jan. 17.
