Louisville Police commanders expect to decide later this week whether Lauren Fanning will remain a police officer after she was arrested early Saturday morning following an altercation at a bar.
Fanning, 24, who is on probation until Jan. 29, was arrested just before 3 a.m. Saturday after allegedly trying to interfere with her sister’s arrest and assaulting a fellow officer at Molly Malone’s Irish Pub, 3900 Shelbyville Road. Fanning was charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer and minor injury assault.
An off-duty police detective who was working outside the bar asked the women to leave and take a cab home, the arrest slip said. When the women refused to leave, the detective attempted to put Kathryn Fanning under arrest, at which time she allegedly kicked him in the groin and Lauren Fanning punched him in the back of the neck.
A witness, who attempted to assist the detective, also was allegedly punched in the face by Lauren Fanning, according to the arrest slips.
[Lt. Col. Yvette Gentry] said at one point, Lauren Fanning also flashed her police badge. “To flash a badge in an incident you’re involved in is not appropriate,” Gentry said.
When Lauren Fanning was arrested, police found a half-empty bottle of Early Times whiskey in her purse. Kathryn Fanning had half a bottle of vodka in her purse, police said.
Kathryn Fanning was charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place, disorderly conduct, assault of a police officer and resisting arrest. She also is scheduled for arraignment Wednesday.
