A 22-year-od woman walking in the median of I-84 is facing charges after allegedly damaging a patrol car while Connecticut State Police troopers were attempting to take her into custody for causing trouble in the roadway.

Waterbury resident Tyara Lewis was arrested at approximately 10:45 p.m. on Tuesday night, after she was asked to stop by troopers several times while walking in the median on I-84 in the westbound lanes near exit 26 in Cheshire.

Police said that Tyara continually veered into traffic, causing motorists to slow down and swerve, causing a dangerous situation. Once she was handcuffed, officers said that she slammed her wrists into a police cruiser, causing damage to the hood.

Tyara was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment, criminal mischief, breach of peace, reckless use of a highway by a pedestrian, failure to obey an officer’s signal and failing to comply with CGS. She was processed and remanded to jail in lieu of $2,000 bond, which she was unable to make. She is due to appear in Meriden Superior Court on Wednesday morning.
