    Just curious, but in other arrests we are usually given the name of the person arrested and some more information about them, such as their address, and sometimes even a mug shot, and I’m wondering why that’s not being provided here.

      Answer: Police provided no mugshot or address. I do know her name, but I did not include it JUST IN CASE charges were dropped by the time this ran because that is highly likely.
