After arriving on the scene, Officer Krol observed several women holding back Nijaherie Scanes, 30, of Camden, who was trying to fight another woman. When Officer Krol attempted to intervene, Scanes punched and kicked him, including striking him in the face.
Scanes also spit on Officer Daniel Kramer and Sgt. Terrell Watkins several times during her arrest.
Scanes was charged with Improper Behavior, Resisting Arrest and three counts of Aggravated Assault on a Police Officer. She was remanded to the county jail with bail set at $15,000 cash or bond.
A person is innocent until proven otherwise.
