A Binghamton teen is accused of battling New York State Police as they tried to take her into custody after stopping a car for speeding on Interstate 81 in the Town of Dickinson at around 11:30 p.m. March 18.

19 year old Jaquira Richard is charged with two counts of resisting arrest and unlawful possession of marijuana.

Troopers say as they initiated the traffic stop, they smelled the odor of marijuana in the vehicle and Richard refused to cooperate, actively resisting arrest.

She was sent to the Broome County Jail on $2,500 bail.
