A Maryland woman was arrested after police say she resisted arrest and injured officers during an investigation in Delaware.

The Rehoboth Beach Police Department says on Friday, just after 3:40 PM, a Rehoboth Beach Police foot patrol officer was contacted by an employee of Tidal Rave which is located in the first block of Rehoboth Avenue, who reported that a shoplifting incident happened in the store. Police say 23-year-old Karisma Wynn Sheeler, who was leaving the area of the store was identified as the suspect. Law enforcement says the officer then attempted to stop Wynn Sheeler and have her return to the store so that he could investigate the reported incident.

According to the report, the 23-year-old Montgomery Village woman refused and became uncooperative and disorderly. Police say she was yelling profanity and causing alarm to the other members of the public in the area. When officers attempted to take Wynn Sheeler in custody, law enforcement reports that Wynn Sheeler refused and fought to prevent them from arresting her. 

Authorities say the 23-year-old was eventually restrained and arrested through the efforts of three police officers. Police later determined that Wynn Sheeler was an acquaintance of the shoplifter, but did not commit the offense. Police also say she was showed signs of intoxication. According to the report, two officers and Wynn Sheeler received minor injuries as a result of her resisting.

Wynn Sheeler was charged with two counts of felony resisting arrest with force or violence, one count of menacing, three counts of disorderly conduct, and one count of failure to comply with taking of photos and fingerprints.  The last five charges are all misdemeanor offenses. 

She was then turned over to the Sussex Correctional Institution in default of $5800.00 cash secured bail.
