KOSCIUSKO — Police have accused an Ohio woman of multiple charges after they arrived at another woman’s house to remove the suspect and received resistance.
Michele Renee Layman, 53, 28758 County Road South, Napoleon, Ohio, is charged with battery causing bodily injury to a law enforcement officer, a level 5 felony; resisting law enforcement, a class A misdemeanor; and disorderly conduct, a class B misdemeanor.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, officers from the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office arrived at a residence in the county where a woman told police that Layman was in her residence and refused to leave.

She was booked in the Kosciusko County Jail on $5,250 surety and cash bond and is scheduled in court on May 10 at 1 p.m. for an initial hearing in Kosciusko County Superior Court 2.
