Police say the officer investigating a report that a man had ripped off a woman's clothing tried to awaken Null after the officer found her in sweat pants and bra lying in the crib. Null screamed and struck the officer, who used a stun gun to subdue her.

The Times says the woman was examined at a hospital before she was taken to Porter County Jail, but an online system showed no record of her there.
