PORTAGE | A Portage woman was arrested Tuesday after police received reports of her dancing in the parking lot of a local fast food restaurant.

Amy Marie Devries, 39, of 1903 Jackson St., was charged with resisting law enforcement and disorderly conduct after the incident.

Police were called to the McDonald's restaurant, 6120 Central Ave., at 5:46 a.m. Tuesday for the report of a woman acting strangely.

Police were told that Devries "appeared to be dancing in the parking lot and then running around her vehicle while yelling and screaming," according to the report.

When police arrived, Devries was jumping up and down next to her vehicle. According to the report, she became uncooperative with the police, shouting profanities and refused to stop when told by police. She also allegedly tried to kick a police officer.

Devries was initially transported to a local hospital for medical clearance and then taken to the Porter County Jail.
