Milford woman charged with resisting arrest

MILFORD — A 29-year-old Milford woman was charged with resisting arrest and other offenses after an incident at Memorial Park Monday night, Milford Police spokesman Det. Timothy Maloney said.

Officers were first called to the scene at approximately 5:28 p.m. for a disorderly conduct complaint that involved two women fighting, police said.

As officers went to the scene, they were told that the fight had ended but a female was still in the park sitting on a bench.

Police attempted to contact Shelly Shockley, who was taken into custody without incident after a brief foot pursuit, authorities said.

She was seen drinking from a liquor bottle, which is prohibited in the park and clearly marked with signage, police said.

Ms. Shockley was transported to the Milford Police Department, where authorities said she attempted to flee from the building but was apprehended prior to exiting. Officers also determined that Ms. Shockley was intoxicated during the incident, police said.

Other charges included third-degree attempted escape, disorderly conduct and unlawful to consume any alcoholic beverage upon public streets, parks and alleys.

Ms. Shockley was presented through Justice of the Peace Court 2 in Rehoboth Beach where she was released on $2,600 unsecured bail with a no contact order with Memorial Park.
