Heather Michele Hall, 35, was charged with two counts of child endangerment and one count of aggravated assault on a police officer after she choked her 11-year-old son on when he tried to protect his baby sister and for assaulting and spitting on arresting officers.
Police were called to Hall’s home and were told she was attacking her son, according to state records.
When arresting officer Michael Jordan arrived, he looked through a sliding-glass door and saw Hall asleep on the couch, with her 2-year-old daughter “pinned” between Hall and the back of the sofa.
Hall woke up and became somewhat aware of what was happening at which point she asked the officer, “What the f— are you doing in my house, Jordan?”
She had ordered her son not to speak with the officers as she continually screamed and cursed at Jordan to get out of her house. According to the other officers at the scene, Hall was unsteady on her feet and fell backward, falling on her 2-year-old daughter.
Hall’s boyfriend Mark Gibbs — father of the toddler — arrived at the apartment and told officers, “She was drinking again,” then picked up an empty brandy bottle that was left on the floor.
“I heard Heather state three times while crying, ‘I don’t want her anymore!’ , referring to the toddler, who was in the room and who Hall was looking at while repeatedly saying the statement, according to officer Jordan in her arrest affidavit.
Investigation say that Hall told her son she no longer wanted his little sister and planned to put the toddler outside. It was 15 degrees Fahrenheit outside and there were 6 inches of snow on the ground. When the boy blocked her way to stop her, Hall grabbed him by the throat until he couldn’t breathe, leaving a red mark on his neck that was 3 inches long and a half-inch wide.
The quick thinking 11 year old grabbed a blanket in case his mother did put the toddler outside, “so I could cover us until you got here” the boy told police.
Hall went feral when officers handcuffed her that she resisted arrest and kicked Officer Christopher Mills in the left leg. She screamed and resisted arrest as officers dragged Hall to a patrol vehicle. Hall then repeatedly spit on the clear plastic security divider between the front and back seats.
She now remains in York County Prison on a $35,000 bail for child endangerment, aggravated assault on a police officer which are all misdemeanors of simple assault, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
