Police were called to a Lincoln Street home where Brown was allegedly banging on the door and windows. She was intoxicated and did not know where she was or how she got to Oberlin, a report said. Officers noted the smell of burnt marijuana on her person and saw she had injuries, which Brown said were incurred when someone tried to steal her wallet in Lorain. When Brown could not find her purse, she became agitated and allegedly started threatening police. Later, she exited a police cruiser — that’s when police said she pushed, then struck an officer in the face, and started kicking. Another officer grabbed her legs and Brown was carried into jail.
