STAMFORD, Conn. — A woman kicked and thrashed around in the rear of a police cruiser and hurt her wrist trying to get out of a handcuff in a dispute that began when her boyfriend was denied entrance into a Bedford Street bar late Saturday, Stamford Police said.
Alanna M. Voloshin, 31, of 53 Brookwood Road, Bethany, and Thomas Kitay, 53, Prospect St., were charged with two counts of third-degree assault and one count of breach of peace.
Voloshin was also charged with interfering with police when she declined to give her name. Police were able to discover her name after finding her identification at the Hudson Grille at 128 Bedford St., where the dispute occurred.
Police said security at Hudson Grille refused to let Kitay into the establishment due to his state of intoxication at 10:40 p.m. He called his girlfriend, who was inside, to come out, police said.
When she came out she "started screaming at security personnel to let Kitay in," Sgt. Larry Brown said.
Kitay tried to enter by walking past security, who grabbed him and prevented him from entering, police said.
He then punched one of the bouncers, police said.
Kitay was quickly taken to the ground by security, and police were called, police said. Police said that Voloshin created a disturbance and also assaulted the Grille's security people.
When police arrived, she had to be handcuffed and she continued making a disturbance in the police cruiser, which included punching and kicking, police said. After she hurt her wrist, she was taken to Stamford Hospital for treatment.
