Local News

CANFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) – A Youngstown woman will have to spend three days in the county jail after being convicted of punching a police officer last month at the Canfield Fair.

Miquaysha Hamlett was in county court Friday where she pleaded “no contest” to a misdemeanor charge of assault.

Early last month, police say Hamlett got into a fight with another woman at the fair, and when a fairgrounds officer tried to break it up, Hamlett punched the officer in the face.

Hamlett will also have to pay a $100 fine.
