NEWARK — A 22-year-old woman is in trouble after police said she attacked them while being arrested.

Zamiyah Taylor was at the Newark Police Department station at 31 Green St. around 4 AM on Sunday, when she was advised that she was being arrested for an outstanding warrant, according to Newark Public Safety Director Brian O’Hara.

She became combative and began kicking, punching, and spitting on two Newark police officers and a sergeant, who suffered a broken ankle in the attack, O’Hara said.
