Correction: Due to a reporting error, the county was incorrect in previous versions of the story.

A Norman woman was arrested in Jackson County early Sunday morning after she was found inside a resident’s dog kennel.

Jackson County deputies report that they were called to the 1300 block of North County Road 825W at about 2:39 a.m. Sunday morning about the unknown woman in the dog kennel in the home’s back yard.
The woman was allegedly belligerent with the resident and refusing to leave the property.

Deputies ordered the woman, 40-year-old Denise M. Konkle to get out of the kennel, but she refused and one of the deputies had to go in after her. During a struggle, Konkle allegedly tried to grab the deputy’s firearm. The deputy subdued her with a Taser and while she was being removed, she allegedly kicked another deputy.

Konkle was arrested on charges including attempting to disarm a police officer, battery on a police officer, resisting law enforcement, criminal trespass, disorderly conduct and public intoxication.
