Police arrested a 23-year-old woman Sunday after she reportedly damaged the window of a police cruiser while officers were trying to question her in a domestic-violence investigation.

According to reports, Keyoshia Shaw, 23, of East Philadelphia Avenue, was booked into the Mahoning County jail on a felony charge of vandalism and misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct and obstructing official business.

Reports said officers were called about 3:45 p.m. to Shaw’s home by her mother, who said she wanted her daughter arrested because Shaw had reportedly grabbed her mouth during an argument.

When officers arrived, they found Shaw walking in the street and asked her to stop so they could question her.

She refused and began swearing loudly at them, reports said.

Officers led her to a cruiser and put her inside, but she began kicking the window and broke it, reports said.

Shaw’s mother told police she changed her mind and did not want to charge her daughter, but she was charged with damaging the cruiser.
