Irvington Woman Charged with Felony Resisting Arrest After Injuring Centralia Police Officer

March 15, 2017

A 30-year-old Irvington woman has been charged with felony resisting arrest following a Sunday morning incident where a Centralia Policeman suffered a sprained ankle.

Tiffany Johnston of Crestview Drive reportedly became upset with police after they responded to a disturbance call in a yard in the 700 block of Cedar Street. She reportedly was taken to the ground where she continued not to comply with police orders. At one point, Johnston rolled over on the officer’s ankle causing the injury.

Police say the officer sought treatment at SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital in Centralia and remains off work.

The Marion County State’s Attorney’s office elected to file the felony resisting arrest charge instead of something more serious because they don’t believe Johnston was attempting to cause the injury.

Bond for Johnston was set at $10,000. She was released from the Marion County Jail after posting $1,000 cash bond.
