On September 13th at 1:06 a.m., during a motor vehicle stop, Secaucus police arrested a Orkidia Rojas, 43, of Bayonne, for driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest, Miller said in a statement.

She was also charged with obstructing the administration of law and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer. Rojas was found to have one outstanding warrant issued out of West New York for $1,000. She was unable to post bail for the outstanding warrant.

“She was stopped and believed to be under the influence of alcohol. She resisted the officers by pulling her arms in an attempt to prevent handcuffing,” Miller added in an email.

“While in a processing room, she refused to obey officers and attempted to bite the sergeant on his arm.”

Rojas was issued her motor vehicle summons for DWI, along with an additional six motor vehicle summonses. After being processed, she was transported to the West New York Police Department, authorities said.
