WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — A Wichita Falls woman is jailed on several charges after a police officer said she was involved in a large bar fight.

Danisha Manuel is charged with resisting arrest, evading arrest and interfering with public duties.

Police officers said several police units were sent to the Haystack Bar on Scott Avenue just before 2 a.m. Friday, Nov. 15 about a large fight.

A police officer said a large group of women were inside fighting and others were running out the door. One officer said Manuel was in the fight and throwing punches before they separated her from the fight. Then the officer said Manuel began pushing on them from behind, then tried to pull them out of the group by tugging on their vest.

The officer said they ordered Manuel to back off but she kept coming toward them. The officer then took out a taser and gave another warning, then fired it when Manuel kept coming. The officer said the taser was not effective.

The officer said Manuel ran out and he tackled her outside and said Manuel resisted his attempts to put her in cuffs and was finally restrained when other officers arrived.
