— An Hopatcong woman is facing disorderly conduct and other related charges after she attempted to spit at a Byram Township Police officer XX while also cursing at officers, according to police.

Paula M. Durnian, 42, of the unit block of Innis Ave., is also charged with resisting arrest and obstructing the administration of law.

Around 4 a.m., April 5, Durnian was processed at the Byram Police Department headquarters on unrealted charges, according to a police department news release.

Upon her release, she began to yell profanities at officers outside the station, the release states.

According to police, Durnian refused to get into the police car and was told that if she kept yelling profanities at the officers, she would be arrested.

She continued to curse and also attempted to spit at one of the officers, according to the release.

An officer then attempted to physically restrain Durnian, to which she resisted, police said.

She was eventually taken back into the station and processed for the new charges.

While being escorted back into the police station, Durnian attempted to kick the officers, and also threatened to shoot an officer with their own gun, the release states. Durnian was later released on her own recognizance.

She was given a mandatory court date at the Byram Township Municipal Court.
