After slipping her handcuffs twice and injuring an Amsterdam police officer, a woman has been remanded to Montgomery County Jail on several charges.

Det. Lt. Kurt Conroy said police responded to the Stewart's Shops on Guy Park Avenue for a disturbance in the parking lot Tuesday just after 9 p.m. While en route, the unit was advised the suspect was chasing a man through the parking lot with an unknown weapon.

Upon arrival, officers found a "highly intoxicated" Christina Lovelace, 30, of 42 Chestnut St., Conroy said. Officers said she was chasing her boyfriend with a weapon, which they later discovered to be a pair of scissors, because, she alleged, he kidnapped her children.

Several APD cars, along with a paramedic and GAVAC vehicle, were on the scene by 9:15 p.m.

Officers handcuffed Lovelace and put her in the back of a squad car, but she began kicking and yelling. Officers opened the car door and attempted to restrain Lovelace, but she had slipped her handcuffs.

Lovelace fought with officers and swung the free handcuff into an unidentified officer's forehead, cutting him. Conroy said he had not received approval to release the officer's name by Wednesday afternoon.

Lovelace was cuffed again and put back into the squad car; however, she managed to slip her cuffs a second time. Officers were able to contain her in the vehicle.

Police said the pair of scissors she used as a weapon were located in the back of her car, where her three children watched Lovelace chase her boyfriend and fight with police.

She and the injured officer were taken to St. Mary's Healthcare for further examination, Sgt. Thomas Nethaway said at the scene Tuesday night.

Lovelace was charged with second-degree assault, a class D felony; second-degree menacing, a class A misdemeanor; endangering the welfare of a child, a class A misdemeanor; resisting arrest, a class A misdemeanor; and third-degree attempted escape, a class B misdemeanor.

She was processed and arraigned Wednesday morning and remanded to Montgomery County Jail.
