A girl punched a Trumbull police officer in the throat at the Bow Tie Cinemas on Jan. 17, police said Monday.
Police Lt. Leonard Scinto said "management reported hearing patrons talking about a fight that was going to occur at the theater. While monitoring the group of youths who were overheard talking about the fight one of the them began shouting obscenities at an officer while in the lobby of the theater."
Police asked the youth to leave but she then walked to the ticket counter and began "shouting more obscenities at the manager while demanding her money back in a lobby crowded with children and other patrons."
An officer approached her and arrested her but she resisted and punched him, police said.
The girl is charged with assaulting a police officer, interfering with a police officer and breach of peace.
