http://blog.cleveland.com/metro/2008/01/woman_on_trial_for_attacking_p.html A Summit County jury must decide if Somier McLaughlin is guilty of assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. Or if she was defending herself after being provoked by officers with an agenda. ....... The night of her arrest, McLaughlin had objected to her ex-husband taking the daughter out of the country for his marriage to another deputy. .... Police will acknowledge that they had no authority to take the child, Stano said, but McLaughlin was verbally abusive from the moment officers arrived. Stano said McLaughlin's ex-husband called police because he expected trouble when he tried to pick up their daughter for the trip. Stano said Sagamore police routinely respond to child-custody disputes. Investigators found that McLaughlin's ex-husband did nothing wrong. Investigators also found, however, that the township police had no business going to McLaughlin's home for such a dispute at 1 a.m. Defense attorney John F. Corrigan said McLaughlin was "at home, in bed, with her daughter at 1 in the morning."
