A city employee tried to resist arrest and attacked a police officer after a fight with her girlfriend became physical at a Long Island City hotel.

According to police, on April 8, Octayvia Scott, 26, who works as an Human Resources Administration worker, was arrested at 2:05 p.m. after she got into a domestic dispute with her 26-year-old girlfriend.

Police could not confirm the exact location of the dispute, however the Daily News reported that it took place at the Giorgio Hotel on 13th Street in Long Island City.

The dispute started as a verbal argument, but quickly turned violent when Scott began to punch the victim in the face and body. She also bit the victim several times on the arms. The victim suffered minor cuts and bruising as a result of the attack.

Officers from the 114th Precinct responded to the scene to take Scott into custody. Scott began to resist arrest by flailing her arms, refusing to be handcuffed and began to shout profanities.

In an effort to have Scott calm down, the officer on the scene had her sit down. Scott then proceeded to kick the officer, who suffered a minor contusion.

Scott was charged with assault, assaulting a police officer, harassment, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
