As officers attempted to break up the altercation, the parties were not complying with commands. As Officer Wheatley was attempting to detain her boyfriend, Tatiana struck the officer in the back of the head multiple times. Officer Dennis Diesel took her into custody, and she was charged with assault of an officer.
