Adrian woman arrested for assault

Rachel Roberts

ADRIAN — A Nobles County deputy was dispatched to an Adrian residence Sunday afternoon for a report of a woman who was using drugs.

Arriving on scene, the deputy was told that Rachel Roberts, 30, of Adrian had been using methamphetamine — which a family member had discovered in her purse and already turned over to local law enforcement — and had just pulled a knife on an occupant of the home.

While being arrested, Roberts was uncooperative with law enforcement instructions, the criminal complaint says. She had to be told numerous times to put her hands behind her back, to stand up to leave the house and to swing her legs into the squad car.

Roberts was charged with three offenses: second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon, threats of violence and disorderly conduct. If convicted, she faces a maximum possible sentence of seven years in prison and/or a $14,000 fine.

After being booked into Nobles County Jail, Roberts allegedly denied having threatened the victim with a knife.
