Katrina Flowers, 21, is facing additional charges of domestic violence, resisting arrest and menacing after an incident Monday night

Charged with vandalism, disorderly conduct, assault, resisting arrest and aggravated menacing after she was found running naked through Niles

NILES, Ohio (WKBN) – The Niles woman who police said was running around naked Saturday night was arrested again on Monday.

Katrina Flowers, 21, was home Monday night on Fenton Street getting some help from family, according to police.

Officers said Flowers’ sister told them that her parents wouldn’t let her leave. Neighbors said they heard a confrontation.

“Real noisy. She kept screaming and kicking,” Dennis Gould said.

Neighbor Harry Zell said Flowers was arguing with her mother and two other girls.

“They were trying to calm her down earlier and later on, the cops are called. I guess she got out of control again.”

The family relayed two incidents to police.

Officers arrested Katrina for domestic violence, saying they noticed red marks on her parents.

Police said it took four people to put Flowers on a stretcher and place a mask over her mouth, but she continued to make threats. She is also charged with resisting arrest and menacing.

“It’s actually a very serious charge. She’s already facing a couple felony charges from two nights ago, and this on top of the existing charges is not going to help her out,” Capt. John Marshall said.

He said additional charges related to aggression toward medical personnel may be filed.

On Saturday, police said they found Flowers running around naked in the parking lot of Flynn’s Tire and Auto Service. They said she refused to cooperate with officers and paramedics, spitting at them and kicking out the window frame of a police cruiser.

Police said it is suspected that she used some sort of synthetic drug, like flakka or bath salts, which can cause paranoia and psychosis.

Flowers was in court Tuesday morning and given a $5,000 bond. She will be back in court next Wednesday.
