Jordyn Miller is charged with resisting arrest

A Lewes woman was charged with resisting arrest and offensive touching after an incident at Grotto's Pizza on Thursday, June 28.

Around 7 p.m., Rehoboth Beach police were called to the Grotto's on the boardwalk at Baltimore Avenue for a report of a disorderly person who was refusing to leave. The manager advised them that 19-year-old Jordyn Miller, a former employee, had come to the restaurant in search of her property but was advised it was not there. She then allegedly became belligerent, yelling profanity and threats in front of customers.

Miller was found outside the restaurant and officers attempted to take her into custody, but she resisted and punched an officer in the side of his head. With the assistance of a second officer, she was eventually handcuffed.

A small amount of marijuana was found in her possession.

Miller was arrested and charged with felony resisting arrest with force or violence, offensive touching of a law enforcement officer, disorderly conduct, third-degree criminal trespassing and possession of marijuana of a personal use quantity (a civil offense). She was later released on $3,126 unsecured bail.

The officer who was assaulted during the incident was treated and released from Beebe Healthcare.
