GREENWICH, Conn. -- A Brooklyn, N.Y., woman threatened a store manager, uttered a bias remark at another store employee and then had to be grabbed by a police officer after she ran from a Greenwich Avenue business on Saturday, according to police.
Natasha Yolanda Parks, 28, of 510 Hancock St., was charged with two counts each of interfering with an officer and second-degree forgery and one count each of third-degree intimidation based on bigotry or bias, threatening, disorderly conduct, criminal impersonation, illegal possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Police said they were called to a Greenwich Avenue department store around 4:15 p.m. to deal with a customer who argued with staff, threw a hangar, threatened a manager and uttered a bias remark against a second employee.
The woman gave police the name of Danielle Elizabeth but decided to make a run for it when she believed she was going to be arrested, Greenwich Police spokesman Lt. Kraig Gray said. However, the officer was able to grab her by the collar and pull her to the ground about a half block from the business, Gray said. The woman allegedly continued to resist after she was caught, Gray said.
When police checked her fingerprints they discovered it was Natasha Yolanda Parks they were dealing with and not Danielle Elizabeth, the name she had given police. Police also found a small amount of marijuana on her.
Gray said there were three other people who were with Parks but they were released without any charges, he said.
Her bond was set at $50,000 and her first scheduled court date is Dec. 7.
