WILLARD — A Willard woman is sitting in jail in connection with assaulting her mother and a police officer Friday night.

Julia A. Polacheck, 39, of 4075 Bevier Road, was arrested on four charges after police received a call reporting possible domestic violence at 9:55 p.m. Friday at her residence. 

Huron County Sheriff’s Lt. Bill Duncan said deputies who responded found that the call was made after Polacheck reportedly began assaulting her 60-year-old mother. He said after talking with her, deputies suspected Polacheck was intoxicated. 

According to the police report, Polacheck resisted arrest and “struggled with the officer when he was trying to get control of her.” Other deputies and officers from the Willard Police Department and state Highway Patrol had to be called to the scene as backup because officers worried her response was getting out of hand. Duncan said during the struggle, just before he and other deputies arrived, she assaulted one of the officers. 

“She struck a deputy on the face with an open hand during the process of trying to get her into the handcuffs,” he said. “She was belligerent, intoxicated and yelling profanities at everyone on scene.”

Polacheck was charged with persistent disorderly conduct, domestic violence, resisting arrest and assault on a police officer and was booked at the Huron County Jail that night.
