When police arrived on the scene, they made contact with Paige Lafferty, a 31-year-old female from Oxford, PA. What followed was anything but typical. Lafferty became combative and grabbed hold of an officer’s gun. She then kicked him before she was subdued and taken into custody without further incident.
