Woman allegedly tried to spit on officers

A Hollidaysburg woman faces charges after she allegedly kicked and attempted to spit on Blair County Prison correctional officers, court documents stated.

Danielle Faith Stonerook, 25, was arraigned Wednesday by Magisterial District Judge Paula M. Aigner on a felony count of aggravated assault with attempts to cause bodily injury after getting into an altercation with officers Monday.

According to court documents, Stonerook was being combative as she was being transported to be arraigned at central booking on previous charges.

Stonerook allegedly was punching and kicking the door of her detainment room in the large bull pen of the prison, the police report stated, and she allegedly refused to comply with correctional officers.

While being transported to central booking, Stonerook allegedly attempted to spit on the escorting officers and kicked one officer in the back of the legs.

Stonerook was initially detained Sunday for charges of escape, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief.

According to a separate criminal complaint, Stonerook was arrested after she allegedly attempted to flee from police after damaging a vehicle on the 600 block of Seventh Avenue.

Police accuse Stonerook of running from officers and shouting “incoherent ramblings.”

As officers detained Stonerook, police said she allegedly screamed a high-pitch shrill and exhibited manic behavior.

Stonerook allegedly continued to scream and failed to cooperate with officers in the police cruiser and while conducting intake at the prison.

She is detained at Blair County Prison in lieu of $32,500 cash bail between the two cases.

Stonerook is to appear before Aigner Sept. 28 for the aggravated assault charges, and a preliminary hearing is also set before Magisterial District Judge Daniel C. DeAntonio Sept. 29 for the charges of escape, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief.
