BG woman arrested for misconduct at an emergency


A Bowling Green woman has been arrested for misconduct during an emergency.

Bowling Green police were called Friday around 7 p.m. to the 600 block of Fourth Street on a report of mental health crisis.

Police were speaking with the roommate when Amanda Rhoads, 40, forced entrance into the residence, nearly pushing over a firefighter who was on scene to provide emergency services.

When told to leave, she allegedly began yelling at the officer and continued to try to enter the apartment to retrieve property she had inside, according to the report.

When told again she needed to leave or be arrested for misconduct at an emergency, Rhoades became irate and stormed away. A patrolman retrieved keys for a vehicle for Rhoads to sit in and stay warm.

A short time later, officers heard yelling and observe Rhoads again attempt to enter through the back door. She was upset she had to wait to retrieve her property, according to the report.

Officers attempted to calm her down, but she refused.

She was arrested for misconduct at an emergency and was taken to jail. She remained in jail Monday on a $1,500 bond.

The woman who locked herself in the bedroom was taken to the hospital.
