Police reports: Girlfriend charged with biting man, fighting policeTell North Platte what you think
 

At 11:31 a.m. Friday, North Platte police went to the 2300 block of East Philip to check out a reported domestic disturbance. 

Officers initially met a 53-year-old man who indicated that his live-in girlfriend, Teresa Marshall, bit him on the arm, not once but twice. He had visible injury on his arm consistent with bite marks, police spokesman John Deal said.

The victim indicated Teresa was intoxicated and began arguing with him, then bit him.  Officers contacted Teresa and found her intoxicated and uncooperative. 

When they went to arrest her, she resisted handcuffs and refused to walk to the patrol car on her own. Deal said she was combative even after she was handcuffed.

She was charged with domestic assault, obstruction and resisting arrest, which was enhanced to a felony charge because of a previous domestic violence conviction. Bond was set at $25,000.

 

Bashed mailboxes

At 11:11 p.m. Thursday, officers responded to reported outdoor disturbance between two men in the vicinity of Madison Middle School. 

When police arrived, they found Jeffrey Shaffner, 29, and another man engaged in a shoving match. 

The two men were separated. Deals said as officers tried to assess the situation, Shaffner said he was leaving and started walking away. Police told him he was not free to go yet, but he kept walking away. 

Deal said when officers tried to stop Shaffner, he pushed through them. They tried to handcuff but he resisted, and had to be taken to the ground to be controlled, according to the police report.

After questioning, police determined that no assault occurred between the two men; however, before officers arrived Shaffner had damaged mailboxes in that area, by punching them, Deal said.

Saffner was charged with obstruction, resisting arrest and three counts of criminal mischief, and taken to jail. He was initially held on bonds totaling $20,000.
