FLEMINGTON, NJ – A Flemington woman has been indicted on a string of charges including endangering the welfare of a child.

Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns, III said in a press release today that the indictment follows the arrest of Sonia Z. Padmore, 31, of Flemington, by Clinton Township police on Oct. 30 last year.

Padmore was stopped for a motor vehicle offense, Kearns said, and then “found to be under the influence of alcohol.”

While police tried to arrest Padmore, “she resisted, bit an officer and spat upon an officer,” according to the statement, which added that she had a child in the vehicle with her at the time.

Padmore was indicted by the Grand Jury and charged with third-degree aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, third-degree resisting arrest, fourth-degree throwing bodily fluids and second-degree endangering the welfare of a child.

“We will continue to support our law enforcement officers as they do their jobs and enforce the laws of this state,” Kearns said.
