A 28-year-old woman was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct Tuesday morning after a heated discussion with a county police officer over why she was approaching cars, police said.
An officer patrolling near Ritchie Highway and 11th Avenue around midnight saw the woman approach several cars at the intersection, police said. When he asked her why she was doing so, the woman cursed him, police said.
The officer tried to calm her and told her he wasn't accusing her of anything, but despite repeated warnings, she kept shouting profanities, police said. The officer arrested her and took her to the Northern District station.
Grace Ann Brittian of the 300 block of Hillcrest Road in Glen Burnie was charged with disorderly conduct and released on her own recognizance.
