Rogers was operating her 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee east on Old Kings Highway North near Raymond Street when an officer ran her registration and determined it was suspended and stopped the vehicle. The officer noted her driver's license was suspended. Rogers became upset and was uncooperative, according to police. She then struck the interior of her vehicle's windshield with an object, damaging the windshield, and ripped the rear view mirror off the windshield.
After being advised she was under arrest, she resisted officer's attempts to place her into the rear seat of the police vehicle and one of the two arresting officers sustained a laceration to his left thumb, according to the report. While being placed into the police vehicle, Rogers kicked the left rear fender of the vehicle resulting in $1,500 worth of damage.
