GREENHILLS, OH (FOX19) - A local village council candidate has been arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Patricia Andwan, 64, was arrested Wednesday morning.

Police received a call that Andwan was refusing to leave a scene where a large tree was being cut down. Workers stated that they were required to stop working until the area was clear of people.

According to an incident report, a Greenhills officer asked Andwan several times to leave and she refused. When he tried to place her under arrest for disorderly conduct, she tensed up and told him she would leave, but he told her it was too late.

She also refused to place her hands being her back, so the officer called for back up. When other officers arrived, Andwan wilfully placed her hands behind her back, was cuffed and placed in the back of the cruiser without further incident.

Andwan is a candidate for Greenhills Andwan village council. She has been released on her own recognizance.
