Vogt noted Miligan threw a cigarette lighter at another female while he was trying to talk to her.

“After that she takes off in an aggressive manner saying she was gonna beat her a--,” Vogt said in the affidavit.

The officer grabbed Milligan by the arm, then Milligan kicked the same female she threw the lighter at previously.

Vogt gained control and put Milligan against the wall. He said she donkey kicked him on his right leg above his knee.

“During this time she said she was going to kill me and my entire family,” the officer said.

Milligan was taken to Vogt’s patrol car and placed under arrest. Milligan was charged with assault and battery on a police officer.

Vogt later found out Milligan threw a letter opener at her father. It hit him in the left side of his upper chest.

Neither the father nor female wanted to press charges against Milligan.
