A Pennsylvania woman faces multiple charges, including felony resisting arrest, after an incident in a Rehoboth hotel Aug. 16.

Just before 11 p.m., Aug. 16, Rehoboth Beach police near 143 Rehoboth Ave. heard a woman begin to scream loudly. Officers determined that Kiley Dippery, 22, of Hummelstown, Pa., had become separated from her boyfriend and assisted her back to her hotel room where she was reunited with her boyfriend.

Minutes after leaving the hotel, officers were called back as Dippery was again screaming loudly. Once contacted by police, Dippery would not stop screaming and had drawn the attention of several hotel guests. Officers placed Dippery under arrest and assisted her from the hotel. While officers attempted to place Dippery into a patrol vehicle, she became combative and kicked an officer in the leg. Neither Dippery nor the officer was injured.

Dippery was charged with resisting arrest with force or violence, which is a felony. She was also charged with misdemeanors offensive touching of a law enforcement officer and disorderly conduct - unreasonable noise, and disorderly conduct - creating a physically offensive condition which serves no purpose. Dippery was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in default of $3,200 secured bail.
