Following a raucous incident during a traffic stop in the 500 block of Willow Road on Saturday night, Feb. 27, two women -- a mother from Menlo Park and her daughter from East Palo Alto -- were booked into San Mateo County jail on charges associated with resisting arrest.
Keilli Maxey, 24, of East Palo Alto is in jail on a no-bail status and charged with obstructing or resisting an officer and making terrorist threats, according to the Menlo Park Police Department.
Ms. Maxey's mother, Lisa Marie MaxeyStribling of Menlo Park, 50, was booked and charged with obstructing or resisting an officer as well as battery on a police officer, police said.
The incident began after an officer pulled over a vehicle determined to be speeding and lacking a license plate, police said. The officer determined that the driver, Ms. Maxey, had an outstanding arrest warrant against her from the Livermore Police Department on charges of assault with a deadly weapon.
Ms. Maxey allegedly pulled away while being handcuffed and attempted to kick officers, police said. Once handcuffed and in the rear of a patrol car, she allegedly screamed, threatened to "kill" an officer and tried, unsuccessfully, to kick out the side-rear windows of the car with both feet, police said.
Ms. Maxey also allegedly spat on an officer, leaving visible saliva stains on the officer's uniform.
Ms. MaxeyStribling, who police say also resisted arrest, allegedly punched an officer on the back with a closed fist, "causing a complaint of pain" from the officer, police said.
