Cpl Barton was out patrolling on 600 North when a female by the name of 36-year-old Kellee Nicole Jim was walking down the road. Cpl Barton knows of Kelle due to her hiding from AP&P multiple times.
Barton asked her what she was doing and if she still had warrants from the last time he dealt with her. Kellee said she would have to ask her agent, but she was leaving and tried knocking on a random home.
Cpl Barton told her to stop, and she failed to do so. He had Kellee walk away from the house, told her to stop it, and asked what she had on her due to her hands moving around and in and out of her pockets when speaking with Kellee.
Barton grabbed Kellee's hands to place her under arrest, and she began resisting and trying to run from the Officer. Another Officer was called to assist. Barton escorted Kellee to the ground. The other Officer arrived, and Kellee was placed into handcuffs.
A used syringe where the two started to struggle was located. Kellee still refused to provide her identity to Cpl Barton and tried running and resisting him due to her no-bail warrants out of the 8th District Court.
Kellee was transported to the hospital for a medical clearance and booked into the Duchesne County Jail.
Kellee Jim was booked in on failure to stop at the command of a police officer, failure to disclose identity, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
