ROCKY RIVER, Ohio (WOIO) - Police tell us that the North Olmsted officer was off duty when he was trying to stop a woman from shoplifting.
That woman was Krystalyn Marcum and she appeared in front of a Rocky River municipal judge on Tuesday.
Marcum was arraigned on charges of felony assault of a police officer and aggravated robbery.
Police say Marcum set off a chain of events last Thursday that led to the officer being struck by a car.
