NEWCASTLE, Del., June 6 (UPI) -- Police in Delaware said a woman who asked to be taken to jail wound up charged with resisting arrest for trying to fight with state troopers.

The Delaware State Police said they responded to a complaint at the Super Lodge Motel in Newcastle at about 6 a.m. Saturday and the troopers were approached by Teiera Rider, 20, who they said was "demanding" to be taken to jail, the Philadelphia Daily News reported Monday.


Troopers said Rider refused their requests for her to calm down and she is accused of kicking and spitting at them as they placed her under arrest.

Rider was charged with resisting arrest, offensive touching of law-enforcement officers, criminal mischief, underage drinking and disorderly conduct.

Police said Rider may have requested to be arrested due to a bench warrant for her arrest stemming from Rider allegedly spitting on a Wilmington, Del., police officer at the scene of a car crash.
