            Bailey was brought into Allegheny County Jail, awaiting arraignment. Police say the officers involved were injured, and that they believe the woman did not have a ticket. The police still do not exactly know what the woman's intentions were. Bailey faces charges of disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and criminal trespassing.
