CORNPLANTER TWP., Pa. (EYT) – An Oil City woman is facing felony assault and related charges following an incident in Cornplanter Township where she allegedly attacked two state police troopers.

Court documents indicate the Franklin-based State Police filed the following criminal charges against 29-year-old Lisa Marie Allmendinger, of Oil City:

– Aggravated Assault, Felony 2 (two counts)
– Resist Arrest/Other Law Enforcement, Misdemeanor 2
– Disorderly Conduct Engage In Fighting, Misdemeanor 3
– Criminal Mischief-Tamper With Property, Summary
– Public Drunkenness And Similar Misconduct, Summary

The charges stem from an incident that occurred on Tuesday, June 13.

According to a criminal complaint, around 3:40 p.m. on June 13, Franklin-based State Police received a phone call from a residence on Quaker Drive in Cornplanter Township regarding a female wearing a black tank top and red and black shorts who was covered in blood and causing damage to the property.

Corporal Miller and Trooper Falco, of PSP Franklin, responded to the location and found a female in the front yard of a residence matching the caller’s description.

According to the complaint, when Trooper Falco approached the woman, she became combative, charged him, and grabbed him. Trooper Falco then pushed the woman back and deployed his taser.

The complaint notes the taser seemed to “have little to no effect” on the woman. Trooper Falco then deployed his taser a second time, and Corporal Miller was then able to physically place the woman on the ground.

According to the complaint, the woman then attempted to bite Corporal Miller on the right lower leg while he attempted to handcuff her.

The woman, who was identified as Lisa Maria Allmendinger, then calmed down and apologized for trying to bite Corporal Miller, according to the complaint.

When asked what caused the injury to her face, Allmendinger told police she had been bitten by a friend’s dog, and noted she did not know how she injured her leg.

The complaint notes that Allmendinger appeared to be under the influence of a controlled substance and also had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on her breath.

She was then transported to UPMC Northwest for treatment of her injuries. After being medically cleared, she was transported to the Venango County Jail for emergency commitment.

Allmendinger was arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge Andrew F. Fish at 8:34 p.m. on August 13.

Unable to post $25,000.00 monetary bail, she remains lodged in the Venango County Jail.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, August 21, with Judge Fish presiding.
