A woman was charged after she bit a friend when they tried to keep her from getting a knife and she kicked a police officer, according to a criminal complaint by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office.

Hannah Vitacco, 19, of Caledonia, was charged by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office with a felony count of battery to a police officer, a misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct, and obstructing a police officer. If convicted of all charges, Vitacco faces up to seven years in prison and/or fines up to $21,000.

According to the criminal complaint, Caledonia Police were called to a home in the 6900 block of Bobolink Road at 3:44 a.m. Monday for a report of Vitacco being out of control, trying to grab knives and biting a person at a party where she had been drinking. When officers arrived, they could hear yelling coming from the garage that was closed. But as officers approached the home, the garage door opened.

Out of control and being disorderly, Vitacco yelled and screamed at the police officers. Her blood alcohol level was .30. During the arrest, Vitacco resisted and refused to get into the police car. Several officers had to physically put her into the car and she kicked one of the officers in the face, the complaint reads.

A cash bond was set for $2,000. A preliminary hearing has been set for 8:30 a.m. Nov. 25.
