A wanted woman on Long Island violently resisted arrest as officers attempted to take her into custody at a Nassau County motel, police said.

Detectives from the Nassau County Police Department’s Third Precinct were dispatched to the La Quinta Motel on Stewart Avenue in Garden City at approximately 9:15 a.m. on Thursday, July 18, where there was a report of a disturbance.

Upon arrival, officers were made aware that a female guest at the motel was recognized from a “Mug Shot Monday” social media alert. The alerts are posted each week by Nassau County Police investigators.

Officers identified the East Garden City woman as April Summers, 31, who had an open warrant out for her arrest in Nassau County on a drug charge.

According to police, when officers attempted to take Summers into custody, she became combative, refused to comply with orders and “violently resisted arrest.” During the course of the arrest, one police officer was injured, suffering a laceration to his hand. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Summers was eventually taken into custody and charged with second-degree assault, resisting arrest and criminal possession of a controlled substance on the open warrant. Summers is scheduled to be arraigned in First District Court in Hempstead on Friday, July 19.
