A woman who tried to climb a fence around the Butler County jail in an attempt to get inside got her wish over the weekend when she was arrested.Tiffany R. Hurd, 36, of Hamilton was caught after trying to scale the barbed wire fence at 705 Hanover St. and yelling “I want to be arrested” early Sunday, sheriff’s officials said.
A corrections officer saw her on the ground and tried unsuccessfully to get her to leave. The officer suspected the woman was intoxicated.
She was booked into the jail about 8 a.m. on misdemeanor charges of criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.
This is the first time anyone has tried to get into the jail by trespassing, sheriff’s officials said.
Sheriff Rick Jones mentioned the incident on his Twitter account Sunday, tweeting: “Prisoner arrested trying (t0) get back (into) jail. … She got her wish. Not the norm. Got it backwards.”
