Doing the backside slide on Rt. 4 drew the attention of Deputy; driver decided she was the boss of the cop
PRINCE FREDERICK, MD. – Two very strong-willed women found out that dealing with a law officer isn’t quite the same as being a snowflake in school and bullying teachers. Those high school days are over, now its time to hire a lawyer.

Griffith was flailing her arms, then dropped to her knees and rolled onto her backside. Cpl. Moschetto stopped and walked over towards Griffith. She immediately stood up, walked back to the vehicle and got back in.
Cpl. Moschetto made contact with the driver, later identified as Alyssa Michelle Bernich, of 45003 Buck Redman Road, Callaway, Md., 18, and also of Cornwall Drive in California, Md., asking her not to drive off so he could speak with Griffith.
Griffith got out the vehicle and began walking away, therefore she was detained.
Bernich exited the vehicle and walked towards Cpl. Moschetto as he was restraining Griffith. Cpl. Moschetto advised her to back away twice or she would be arrested.
She refused to back up, therefore she was also detained. Both women were transported to the Calvert County Detention Center. Griffith was charged with Disorderly Conduct and Resisting Arrest. Bernich was charged with Hindering and Obstruction.
