Woman wanted for resisting arrest resists 

A woman annoyed that a San Francisco cop had written her a parking ticket apparently forgot she was wanted on a $30,000 warrant.

The suspect who scoffed at numerous attempts by a San Francisco police officer to issue her a parking citation in Potrero Hill on Tuesday ended up in jail after the frustrated cop conducted a records check on the woman. Police learned she was wanted on charges of battery and — you guessed it — resisting arrest, police at the Bayview Station said.

About 12:30 p.m., two officers patrolling the area of Dakota and 23rd streets, near the Potrero Hill Recreation Center, noticed a car was parked on the wrong side of the road and was blocking a fire hydrant.

While one officer was issuing a citation, two people came out of a building to walked to the car. The cop told them to wait until he finished filling out the ticket, police said, but the pair allegedly ignored him and drove off, with a woman behind the wheel.

The officers stopped the car a block away. This time, the female driver accepted the citation. But she was very annoyed, police said, and “drove off while the officer was still standing near the driver’s door.” As she drove away, the cop reportedly saw her throw out the citation.

The officers stopped her again. This time they ran her identification through a law enforcement database and found out about her warrant. She was booked into County Jail, police said.
