Colleen Fellin Faces Aggravated-Assault Charge for Allegedly Squeezing Phoenix Cop's Scrotum

A Phoenix woman is facing a felony charge for allegedly squeezing a cop's scrotum -- and not in an attempted-bribery kind of way.

According to court documents obtained by New Times, Colleen Fellin, 30, was standing in the middle of Indian School Road near 20th Avenue around 4 p.m. last Friday, throwing stuff around and blocking traffic.

One man flagged down an officer and said that Fellin had kicked his truck and damaged it, and he wanted to press charges.

A fully uniformed Phoenix police officer went to arrest Fellin on suspicion of disorderly conduct and criminal damage, but she tried to pull her wrist away when the officer grabbed it.

According to the documents, the officer pulled back on her wrist, and as he pulled her closer, Fellin grabbed the officer by the scrotum and squeezed, "causing him pain."


Fellin was then placed on the ground, at which she tried to bite the officer's wrist, the documents state.

The arresting officer also received multiple scratches on his arm during the arrest, and court documents note that Fellin has prior charges and convictions for resisting arrest.
