Woman sentenced for kicking trooper


A Westminster woman was sentenced yesterday to 90 days' home confinement for kicking a state trooper who arrested her for drunken driving last year, court records show.

Carroll Circuit Judge Michael M. Galloway found Carol L. Wallenhorst, 36, guilty of second-degree assault and driving while intoxicated after she pleaded not guilty to the charges in July.

Galloway imposed a one-year sentence before suspending all but 90 days' home confinement. The judge ordered her to abstain from alcohol, submit to random testing and continue an after-care program. He fined her $500.

She completed a 21-day, inpatient alcohol treatment program and has been on home confinement since May 3, papers show.

Wallenhorst was stopped by police after her vehicle struck a highway road barrel Sept. 16 on Route 140 in Westminster, court documents show. After she failed sobriety tests, Trooper J. M. Knight arrested her and was kicked in the leg later at state police barracks, court documents show.
