Saturday night fight leads to charges against mother, police say

Posted

ROME — A large fight at Railroad and Bouck streets in Rome Saturday night is under investigation, with one woman charged for trying to keep police away from her brawling son, according to the Rome Police Department.

Rome Police said they were dispatched to the area behind St. John the Baptist Church for a large fight involving multiple people at about 9:40 p.m. Saturday, near the intersection of Railroad and Bouck streets. Police said they arrived on the scene and found both juveniles and adults brawling, including attacking city firefighters who were already on scene trying to break up the disputes.

Two juveniles were fighting one another, and when an officer attempted to break them up, police said at least one of the juveniles swung at the officers. Then the mother of one of the juveniles got involved and pushed the officer away from her son, police stated.

The mother, 35-year-old Tiffany L. Davis-Hernandez, also grabbed onto her son's clothing to try to prevent an arrest, authorities said.

Davis-Hernandez was taken into custody on one count each of resisting arrest and obstruction of a governmental administration, police stated. She is scheduled to appear in Rome City Court.

The fight and the juveniles involved remain under investigation, police said.
