A Florida woman has been detained in the Franklin County Regional Jail after she reportedly attempted to kick Frankfort police officers during her arrest Sunday night.

Officers allegedly found 39-year-old Elizabeth Curry, who appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, at Rose’s Pub at 10:40 p.m. Law enforcement noted that she was unable to stand or walk without stumbling, had glossy eyes, slurred speech and smelled of alcohol.

According to her arrest citation, Curry tried to kick officers while she was being arrested.

“While searching [Curry’s] backpack, officers found a plastic bag containing what appeared to be a white, crystal rock-like substance that appeared to be methamphetamine and a straw,” an officer wrote in her citation. “In [Curry’s] wallet, officers found a white, crystal rock-like substance that appeared to be methamphetamine.”

She is charged with third-degree assault (police officer or probation officer), a Class D felony, and alcohol intoxication in a public place, first and second offenses, a violation.

Curry was transported to jail. A judge has not yet set bond in her case.
