Yoana Arreola Adams, 32, of Perry was arrested Monday on charges of assault on peace officers and others, interference with official acts and first-offense public intoxication.

A Perry woman tussled with an officer of the Perry Police Department Monday, compounding her public-intoxication charge with interference and assault charges.

Yoana Arreola Adams, 32, of 2101 Lucinda St., Perry, was charged with assault on persons in certain occupations, interference with official acts and first-offense public intoxication.

The incident began about noon Monday in the 2600 block of Willis Avenue, where officers of the Perry Police Department responded to a report of a possibly impaired person at a local convenience store.

An officer made contact with Adams, who was in a 2020 Cadillac Escalade, and the officer “could detect the strong odor of alcohol coming from” Adams, and “her eyes were bloodshot and watery, and she could barely complete her sentences while slurring,” according to court records.

Adams was taken into custody for public intoxication and transported to the Perry Police Department at 908 Willis Ave.

In removing Adams from the patrol vehicle, which was parked in the sally port, the officer saw that Adams “had slipped one of her hands out of her handcuffs, and she began to come at” the officer “with her hands and legs,” according to court records.

The officer subdued Adams “after several minutes of wrestling” with her, during which Adams continued “fighting” and “resisting” the officer until the officer “placed her back into handcuffs,” according to court records.

Adams was held in the Dallas County Jail on a $1,000 cash or surety bond. She is scheduled for a preliminary hearing June 2 in Dallas County District Court.

Adams was convicted of interference with official acts-bodily injury in 2019 in Dallas County District Court. She was arrested on a charge of assault on persons in certain occupations-bodily injury in Granger in 2019, but the charge was later dismissed in Dallas County District Court. She was arrested on a charge of assault on persons in certain occupations in Boone in 2020, but the charge was later dismissed in Boone County District Court.

*A criminal charge is merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
