A high-society, New York City and Palm Beach, Fla. woman arrested in November for biting a police officer and a paramedic and spitting in the face of another officer now faces new charges.
Westport police said today Alexendra Skiffington, 26, turned herself in at police headquarters Sunday night to be booked on charges of operating under the influence and taking a motor vehicle without permission.
Released after posting a $2,500 bond, Skiffington is scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Monday, Feb. 2, said Capt. Vincent Penna.
She was originally arrested on Nov. 29 when officers responded to a domestic disturbance at a Richmondville Avenue address where she was attempting to leave in her boyfriend’s car without his permission, police said. (See WestportNow Dec. 5, 2014)
“This had begun the argument between the two,” Penna said. “Skiffington was belligerent and out of control at the scene to the point where she had to be physically restrained.
“While attempting to restrain her, she bit an officer and a paramedic, as well as spit in the face of a second officer,” he added.
Bond on the earlier charges was set at $25,000.
Skiffington is a noted equestrian groomed in a family that has “traveled extensively buying and racing horses in locations such as Deauville & Chantilly France, Great Britain, Ireland and Japan,” according to the Skiffingtons Fine Apparel website.
The family has boutiques in Southampton, N.Y., Portsmouth, R.I. and New York.
Skiffington has also graced the Hamptons society pages, welcoming Barron Hilton and Joanna Pallante to her family boutique’s Skulls & Halos Trunk Show in June 2014.
