On 03/27/2015 at approximately 1:27AM, officers from the Frederick Police Department were dispatched to a fight in progress in the area of the 1000 block of West Patrick Street. Upon arrival, officers began to interview the victim of the assault, when they were approached by a female witness, identified as Elizabeth Boxwell. As Boxwell approached the officers she removed a expandable baton from her front pocket. Officers ordered Boxwell to drop the baton several times, but she refused.
