Battery, Spitting Among Charges for Stevens Point Woman
By Brandi Makuski
A Stevens Point woman faces multiple charges after allegedly assaulting and spitting on paramedics.
Loretta Nagorski, 37, was arrested on Oct. 18 after a caller reported hearing screams from a hotel room where Nagorski was staying. When police entered her room at Elizabeth Inn, they found pill bottles, a straw containing a white powder residue and a broken window with large glass shards on the floor.
According to the criminal complaint, when Nagorski saw police in her room she dropped to the floor and began to shake. When officers asked if she needed help, she stopped shaking and told police, “I’m a good actor”.
Nagorski became combative when paramedics arrived, punching one in the chest and also spitting at him.
She faces charges including battery to an emergency rescue worker, throwing or discharging bodily fluid at a public safety worker, criminal damage to property, resisting or obstructing an officer, disorderly conduct and bail jumping. She had been on bail for felony retail theft.
Nagorski is being held on $5,000 cash bond. She returns to court Nov. 9.
