Woman grabbing joggers arrested

CHAPEL HILL Lt. Kevin Gunter of the Chapel Hill Police Department said it happened on the Bolin Creek Trail Tuesday afternoon.

Gunter said officers got a report of something going on along the trail and went to check it out. When they arrived, they found 43-year-old Njeri Ngugi holding onto a male jogger.

When they approached, she let the man go. Police say they asked Ngugi what she was doing, and she told them she was having a good time. They also said she smelled of alcohol, was acting erratically, and was cursing and grabbing her crotch.

As they arrested Ngugi for being drunk and disruptive, she allegedly spit in an officer's face, so they added a charge of malicious conduct by a prisoner. This is Ngugi's second brush with the law in a week. Last weekend, she was charged with marijuana possession after an officer spotted her rolling a joint in front of a downtown coffee shop.
