Police: Woman tried to break into Ohio jail
HAMILTON, Ohio - Police in southwest Ohio are perplexed about why a woman tried to sneak into a county jail before telling authorities to arrest her.
Deputies with the Butler County Sheriff's Office arrested 36-year-old Tiffany R. Hurd when she was caught trying to climb over a fence into Butler County Jail in Hamilton, near Cincinnati.
The Sunday morning arrest came after jail staff told Hurd to leave the property, but she told them to arrest her.
Deputies then repeatedly asked Hurd to leave, but she refused and attempted to climb the fence again. Deputies say she was intoxicated.
Hurd was arrested on misdemeanor charges of criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct. She is now at the county jail.
Hurd's bond has been set at $2,500. Her attorney did not immediately return a message Monday.
