Newark woman attempts to obstruct breathing of roommate

A Newark woman was arrested following investigation into a family trouble.

According to a news release, the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office arrested Johanna Hagen, 42, of Arcadia for harassment, criminal contempt, and criminal obstruction of breathing.


Hagan was reportedly involved in an argument with her roommate over a vehicle which turned physical. She became irate and began spitting on the roommate and swearing at him before holding her hand over his mouth and nose in an attempt to obstruct his breathing.

Hagan is scheduled to appear in Town of Arcadia Court at a later date to answer charges.
