Police charged a woman who got out of hand celebrating her own birthday and became intoxicated and disruptive at a local bar.

Shakayla Montice Cowan, 23, of the 100 block of 11th Street, Spencer, was charged Wednesday with misdemeanor resist, obstruct, delay an officer. She was issued a $1,000 secured bond.

Salisbury Police responded to Benchwarmers, 113 East Fisher St., at 2:24 a.m. for a disturbance involving two women there. One woman was found outside and the other inside the establishment. Police said the women refused to leave.

The woman located outside the bar was cooperative and eventually left, but officers said Shakayla Cowan told them she was celebrating her birthday and she wasn’t going to leave.
