Nikita Latrice Taylor, 38 of Rome, was jailed this week after reports said she hit a police officer in the face while being placed under arrest for dancing in the middle of the roadway.

Reports said that officers stopped Taylor in the middle of North Broad Street near Calhoun Avenue after they observed her dancing in the roadway.

While being placed under arrest, she is accused of pulling away from one officer and then striking another with her hand.

Taylor is charged with felony obstruction, willful obstruction and crossing a roadway where there is no crosswalk.
