Police Chief: Sleepy Hollow Woman Bites Cop

Sleepy Hollow Police Chief Gregory Camp reports on a traffic stop gone violent.

A Sleepy Hollow woman stopped by police early Tuesday morning for going through a stop sign was ultimately charged with assaulting an officer.

Police Chief Gregory Camp reported that at first Ana Rosas, 34, wouldn't exit her car. Then she allegedly hit an officer with her pocketbook and kicked the officer in the knee. Finally, Camp reported that she bit an officer at police headquarters.

Camp issued the following statement about the incident:

On August 14, 2012 at about 3:11 a.m., officers conducted a traffic stop on Valley St. The vehicle had passed a stop sign without stopping.

The vehicle was driven by a 34-year-old female resident of Sleepy Hollow. She was unlicensed and when advised by the officers that her vehicle would be impounded, she obstructed the officers by refusing to exit the vehicle. She then struck an officer with her pocketbook and also kicked the officer in the knee. She was transported to headquarters and while being secured, she bit an officer on the arm.

Ana Rosas was charged with two traffic violations and Penal Law crimes of Obstructing Governmental Administration and Assaulting a Police Officer.

She was arraigned and remanded to the County Jail for a court date next Monday. The officer was treated at Phelps ER for the bite wound.

On Wednesday Camp clarified that it was the same officer who was allegedly kicked, hit with a pocketbook, and finally bitten by Rosas. "No speculating on the reason," Camp said, when asked what might have prompted such behavior.

NO, No, we need her, and the others. There is a silent belief that these people fill apartments thus allowing the owners to collect rent which means tax revenue to the villages. Maybe there is some truth to this. Look at how many people would love to leave their "underwater" homes to rent an apartment. One of the reasons rents are so high is because they are in demand. Get rid of people residing in this country unlawfully, supply will go up and rents will likely go down. Things have to change. Let's see if this lady tries to turn the table and sue for some reason. Deporting her ain't gonna happen, she probably has 5 kids.
