Scuffle With Officer

Sponsored by:

Angels Camp, CA — An Angels Camp woman allegedly got into a fight with a Police Officer.

The Angels Camp PD reports that 48-year-old Christy Lynn Willcox was pulled over while driving near the Highway 49 and Centennial Way intersection. The PD says she immediately stepped out of the vehicle and started yelling profanities at the officer. Willcox then attempted to retrieve something from her vehicle, and the officer told her to stop. Wilcox ignored the officer and he physically tried to prevent her from getting into the car. The two got into a physical altercation, and at one point Willcox allegedly kicked the officer.

Calaveras County Sheriff’s deputies responded to assist the Police Department, and eventually Willcox was handcuffed and taken to County Jail. Willcox’s 10-year-old son was in the passenger side of the vehicle.

Willcox faces charges of resisting and obstructing an officer, battery on an officer, and child endangerment.

The arrest was on December 3rd at 11:15am.
