Toledo woman arrested for obstruction in BG


A Toledo woman was arrested for obstructing official business after she allegedly struggled with Bowling Green officers while they were trying to handcuff her.

On Thursday at 12:09 a.m., a Bowling Green Police Division officer stopped a silver Jeep for traveling 39 mph in a 25 mph zone at North Main Court streets.

The driver was identified a Haylee Papulias, 27.

The officer discovered her license was suspended. When he reapproached the Jeep to inform Papulias she was suspended and she could call a valid driver, she became extremely angry and began yelling uncontrollably and demanding to be let go, according to the report.

The officer told her if she could get a valid driver, her vehicle could be parked nearby and she could be released. Papulias continued to scream and stated she had no one to pick her up and told the officer he should either let her drive home to Toledo or should drop her off at her residence in Toledo.

After she continued to yell insults at the officer, additional units were requested, according to the report.

Once other units arrived, Papulias was asked to step out of her vehicle. She continued yelling and refused to walk over and stand on the sidewalk after being instructed to do so. She then began walking away and into the middle of the street, according to the report.

She continued to pull her arms away from officers when they started handcuffing her behind her back.

She was placed into a cruiser and continued to scream and cuss while the officer typed out her traffic ticket.

Papulias was cited for speed and license forfeiture and was arrested for obstructing official business.

She screamed and cussed during the drive to the jail then began throwing herself back and forth against the cruiser door, according to the report.

At the jail, multiple deputies escorted Papulias out of the cruiser and into the booking room.
