PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A pregnant woman is spending the night behind bars, charged with assaulting a police officer.
However, she says she’s the one who was assaulted.
Police say this is the result of a long-standing custody dispute.
The woman allegedly refused to hand over her child last night when she found herself in a physical altercation with police.
“She was out of control,” said Dwayne Thomas who is the father of the woman’s child.
Krista Abram, who is 8 months pregnant, was arrested on charges that she assaulted a Versailles Police officer during a custody exchange Sunday night.
“I saw her pushing the police officer, she wrapped her legs around my daughter,” Thompson said.
The 5-year-old girl is spending the night with her father.
Abram is currently in the Allegheny County Jail.
