MARSHFIELD — A Marshfield woman is charged with resisting an officer after reportedly being hostile toward police and refusing to cooperate.
Natalie Goheen, 38, is charged with resisting or obstructing an officer, a misdemeanor with a maximum sentence of up to nine months imprisonment, a $10,000 fine, or both if convicted of the charge.
According to court documents, on Oct. 1 a man claiming to be Goheen’s husband reported to police he believed his wife was driving while intoxicated. Police located Goheen while she was driving on the 300 block of E. 21st St.
The officer reported Goheen was driving without headlights at night.
After pulling her over, the officer reported that Goheen exuded a strong odor of intoxicants and that her eyes were bloodshot and glassy. Beer bottles were reportedly seen in the vehicle as well.
She was allegedly hostile toward the officer and refused to leave her vehicle.
After officers removed Goheen from the vehicle, she allegedly refused to walk and had to be carried by the officers to the squad car. She reportedly refused field sobriety tests.
Goheen is currently free on a $1,000 signature bond and is to maintain absolute sobriety and not enter any establishments that sell alcohol.
She returns to Wood County Circuit Court on Jan. 15 at 9 a.m. for a pretrial conference.
