MENTOR, Ohio--- An unruly bar patron turns violent when confronted by police!

Saturday night, an employee at the Hooley House Bar and Restaurant in Mentor called police after a woman was reportedly swinging at another customer.

Police say when they showed up, Deanna Frey, 38, of Painesville became combative.

Lt. Ken Zbiegien said, “Her first words out of her mouth was she wasn't going anywhere with us.”

During the arrest, police say Frey kicked one of the officers in the shin.

Lt. Zbiegien said after she was transported back to the station, Frey layed down on the ground and refused to give her name.

“One of the police officers here was assisting a corrections officer, and when he walked in she kicked him. So she decided to kick two officers, neither one had visible injuries but I’m sure their shins were sore the next day,” said Lt. Zbiegien. “After she sobered up several days later, she didn't recall anything.”

Frey is charged with 2 felony counts of assaulting a police officer and 1 count of persistent disorderly conduct.

Frey posted bond after she entered a not guilty plea during Monday’s arraignment. She is scheduled to be back in court on April 30 for a pre-trial hearing.

Fox 8 News contacted Frey by phone but she declined to comment.
