Affidavit: Suspect assaulted corrections officer during attempted escape

From the Las Vegas Optic

A woman in custody at the San Miguel County Detention Center on charges relating to a string of violent robberies last year faces additional charges of assaulting a corrections officer while attempting to escape custody.

Adamina R. Esquibel, 20, of Las Vegas, has been charged with one count battery upon a peace officer, and one count attempt to escape from the custody of a peace officer following a March 21 incident.

Esquibel was in the custody of SMCDC officers while at Alta Vista Regional Hospital when she asked to use the bathroom. As the officer was removing handcuffs from her wrists, Esquibel grabbed the handcuff key and pulled away from the officer, according to an arrest affidavit filed in San Miguel Magistrate Court.

During the struggle, police allege Esquibel slammed a door on the officer, causing abrasions to his hand and elbow, and the officer had to drag her from the bathroom, according to the affidavit. Esquibel continued to resist the officer, and kick at him until he was able to handcuff her again.
