MANSFIELD TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County) – A Mansfield Township woman spat on an officer when police went to her home for a noise complaint, police said.
On Dec. 27, at 1:33 a.m., township police responded to Mansfield Village Apartments on the report of an ongoing problem of loud music. When officers arrived, the officers heard the loud music several buildings away and then found the apartment the music was coming from, police said.
The music was turned down and the resident, who was identified as Kiersten A. Jarvis, 42, allegedly refused to come to the door. She eventually came out on the second-floor balcony and was advised of the complaint, police said.
Jarvis allegedly cursed at the officers and spat at them striking one of the officers. She was advised she was under arrest and allegedly pulled away from officers as they were handcuffing her, police said.
Jarvis was charged with aggravated assault (throwing bodily fluids at law enforcement), resisting arrest and disturbing the peace. She was lodged in the Warren County Jail pending a court appearance, police said.
