Warrant issued for BG woman charged with assault


A nationwide warrant has been issued for a Bowling Green woman who was involved in a downtown brawl that injured a police officer several years ago.

Zoie Moore, 22, didn’t show Monday for a community control violation hearing in the courtroom of Wood County Common Pleas Judge Molly Mack.

Defense attorney Sara Roller told the judge it was unlikely her client would show.

In September 2019, Bowling Green police officers responded to the 100 block of East Court Street to try to break up a fight.

Moore admitted to tackling a Bowling Green Police Division officer from behind while he was trying to arrest her boyfriend. The officer fell, scraping his right hand, right forearm, left forearm and right knee.

A nearly two-minute video taken of the incident showed one officer arresting someone on the ground when another was pushed. That led to five officers trying to control two additional people on the ground.

Moore was sentenced in May 2020 to 90 days in jail and three years community control after pleading guilty to charges of assault, a fourth-degree felony; intimidation, a third-degree felony; retaliation, a third-degree felony; and escape, a fifth-degree felony.

Since then, she has had nearly a dozen community control violations.

Moore violated her community control sanctions on Sept. 25, 2020, when she requested her office appointment with her probation officer be rescheduled. She did not appear on Oct. 5, 2020. Voicemails were left scheduling Moore for appointments on Oct. 8 and Oct. 13 at which time she said that she had relapsed. An appointment was set for Oct. 14, and she did not show.

On Oct. 26, 2020, she was arrested and on Nov. 10, she was granted a furlough for a treatment center. On Nov. 18, the court was alerted that she had left the facility without permission, at which time her furlough and bond were revoked.

Moore was arrested again Dec. 7, 2020, and on Dec. 28 was sentenced to a community based correction center. She was discharged Feb. 17, 2021.

On Oct. 1, 2022, Moore reported for a drug screen and tested positive for marijuana.

On Nov. 29, 2022, she called the adult probation office and admitted to using marijuana and methamphetamine.

On Dec. 8, 2022, she was admitted to residential care, but on Jan. 4 tested positive for Gabapentin. Moore said she thought she was taking acetaminophen.

She failed to return to the center on Feb. 21. Moore has not updated the probation office with a new address and her whereabouts are unknown.

Wood County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Lara Rump said she believed Moore was in Michigan.
