Woman sentenced for biting police officer during October theft arrest

By Christine Holmes, News Director

A Zanesville woman was sentenced to 11 months in prison Monday after biting a police officer in October.

According to Assistant Prosecutor Ron Welch, 25 year-old Olivia Creeks was caught breaking into a car to steal backpacks when she became combative with the arresting officer. That’s when Welch said Creeks bit the officer.

Prior to her sentencing, Creeks pleaded guilty to one count of assault on a peace officer — a fourth-degree felony, one count of theft — a fifth-degree felony, criminal damaging — a first-degree misdemeanor, one count of falsification — a first-degree misdemeanor and one count of drug paraphernalia — a fourth-degree misdemeanor.

In addition to her aggregate prison sentence, Creeks was ordered to pay $200 in restitution.
