Woman panhandling for money accused of battering ISP trooper

JEFFERSONVILLE, IN (WAVE) - A woman identified as a panhandler was arrested late Tuesday night for battering an Indiana State Police trooper in Jeffersonville, according to ISP investigators.

Police said the trooper from the ISP post in Sellersburg noticed a woman standing near the roadway at U.S. 31 near Court Avenue in Jeffersonville just before midnight Tuesday. She was holding a sign asking for money. As the trooper approached her, he recognized her as a woman he had told earlier in the evening to move away from the road for safety concerns.

The trooper said the woman refused to identify herself and then tried to shut his car door as he exited his vehicle. The woman then battered the trooper, but he was not injured, according to an ISP news release.

The trooper took Jennifer Renea Trew, 32, of Jeffersonville into custody. She was transported to the Clark County Jail on misdemeanor charges of battery and resisting law enforcement.
