Elkins Police arrested a woman accused of threatening an officer.

On April 7, an officer answered a call about a woman in the Holiday Inn Express parking lot threatening to kill a man and punching his vehicle, according to a criminal complaint.

After arriving on scene, the officer found a woman matching the given description.  Police said the woman had been warned about a breach of peace and was not very compliant.

The officer exited the cruiser and spoke with the woman, who told the officer her name was “Mrs. You can f— yourself,” according to a criminal complaint.  Police said the officer then told the woman she was under arrest for breach of peace, and he put the woman into hand restraints.  At that time, the woman began to resist and degrade the officer, according to police.

Another officer arrived on scene to assist, at which time the woman, later identified as Carrie Hickson, 40, of Cass, made herself dead weight and refused to walk, police said.  Officers took Hickson to the cruiser, where she continued to resist, according to police.

During transport to Tygart Valley Regional Jail, police said Hickson threatened the life of the first officer multiple times and continued to act unruly.  Once at the jail, Hickson continued to act in the same manner, according to police.  Hickson had also refused to identify herself, but jail employees were able to identify her, according to a criminal complaint.

Hickson is charged with threats of terrorist acts.  She is in Tygart Valley Regional Jail.
