Six people were arrested in three incidents in the city’s Chippewa bar district over the weekend, including one woman accused of kicking a police officer in the throat.
Janice D. Humphrey, 24, of Cheektowaga, was arrested just before 3 a.m. Sunday on West Chippewa Street between Franklin and Pearl streets after hitting an officer in the head with shoes and kicking him in the throat, according to a Buffalo police report.
Humphrey was charged with second-degree assault, a class D felony; resisting arrest, a misdemeanor; and second-degree obstruction of governmental administration, also a misdemeanor.
She was arrested along with Davon Lewis, 23, of Buffalo, who was thrown out of a bar twice but refused to leave the area, according to another police report. It was unclear from police reports how Humphrey and Lewis were associated.
Lewis was fighting with staff of a nightclub on West Chippewa Street, and refused to leave the area when police asked him to leave, according to their report. Lewis was charged with third-degree criminal mischief, a class E felony, and five counts of disorderly conduct, a violation.
In another incident, four men were charged with misdemeanor assault, accused of beating up two other men on Chippewa near Franklin Street. The date and time of the incident were not included in the summary of the police report.
The two male victims, one from West Seneca and the other from Orchard Park, were punched in the head and body. One of the victims was kicked while on the ground, according to a summary of the report.
Arrested were Jordan Davis, 20; Dakota Richardson, 18; Heliberto Sanchez, 23; and Jason Shaw, 25, all of Buffalo.
All four were charged with third-degree assault, a class A misdemeanor, and second-degree harassment, a violation.
