Police: Woman attacked child, bit officer in Wildwood Crest

Law enforcement officials said a 'highly intoxicated' 43-year-old woman swung around a 10-year-old boy at a motel pool in Wildwood Crest, attacked the child's father and bit an officer after being arrested

Police in Wildwood Crest, New Jersey, have arrested a Philadelphia woman who, they claim, attacked a 10-year--old boy at a motel pool, fought his father and then bit an officer all while she was 'highly intoxicated' last week.

According to police, 43-year-old Fallan Turner, of Philadelphia, was arrested after an incident that happened at a motel along the 6200 block of Ocean Avenue on Monday, June 17.

On that day, at about 2:29 p.m., police responded after Turner, allegedly, was "highly intoxicated" and had gone "out of control in the pool," officials wrote in a report on social media.

According to police, witnesses told responding officers that, while at the pool, Turner "grabbed an unrelated 10-year-old juvenile male, and swung him around in the pool, dunking him underwater." When the boy's father attempted to intervene, officials said, Turner jumped on the man's back and grabbed him inappropriately.

Also, police claim, when officers arrived, Turner "became belligerent" while talking with them and was placed under arrest.

However, while she was being handcuffed, police officials said, Turner pushed an officer in the face and resisted his control.

As she was being processed later, at police headquarters, officials claim, Turner continued to be combative against officers and bit an officer's hand.

Yet, no officer was significantly hurt by Turner, officials said.

Turner has been arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of children, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest and other offenses.
