Lori Cooper was charged with simple assault and disorderly conduct in the Oct. 30 incident.
A police report obtained by CBS 2 said around 4 a.m. Oct. 30, the casino contacted Hammond police saying two women were in the restroom intoxicated and one of them, Cooper, had battered a casino worker. The casino worker told a Hammond police officer she did not want to seek charges, the police report said.
She didn't want to wear a mask and kept taking it off, and while being escorted from the property struck an Indiana Gaming Commision Officer. This was captured on the body cam of a responding police officer.
The proffer added that the Hammond officer’s body camera video footage showed that Cooper appeared to be intoxicated and her attitude was “angry, insulting, and uncooperative.”
She's a cop; she doesn't need to cooperate. The rules don't apply to cops. (Just ask her.)
