A woman accused of smashing picture frames and mirrors and waving a gun around in front of three children also allegedly assaulted two Rock Hill police officers, according to law enforcement records.

Elizabeth Trotter of Rock Hill was charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature and assaulting an officer while resisting arrest, according to Rock Hill jail records.

Trotter’s 14-year-old daughter called police Sunday night while Trotter and her husband were arguing, according to a police report. Trotter was reportedly smashing glass picture frames and mirrors in the home.

Police say that when Trotter’s husband threatened to leave her, she took a .380-caliber pistol from a dresser, stood on a night stand and began waving the gun around to frighten him.

The girl witnessed the incident, and two other children were hiding in their bedrooms, police said.

Trotter began to kick and punch both officers when they tried to arrest her, the report states. She reportedly punched one officer in the face and kicked him in the stomach.

Neither officer requested medical attention.
