Elizabeth Schindler, 32, of Bayonne, was charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, criminal mischief, resisting arrest, and obstructing a governmental function, Police Capt. Eric Amato said.

Schindler was taken in to custody on September 4th at about 12:45 a.m. from the area of East 21st Street. Officers responded to the area on a report of a woman punching vehicles, located her, and began an investigation.

Throughout the investigation, Schindler refused to cooperate and continually shouted at a man nearby. According to the victim, after he observed her punching his vehicle, he confronted her.

During the confrontation, an argument ensued and she pushed over his parked motorcycle. Officers then placed Schindler under arrest and attempted to place her in handcuffs but she resisted arrest by pulling her arms to her chest.

The officers were able to secure her in handcuffs and, as she was handcuffed, she proceeded to kick an officer multiple times. As a result, she was also charged with the assault, police said.
