Butler County deputies went to the rear of the jail after being notified that a suspicious person was trying to climb over the facility’s barbed-wire fence at 7.27 a.m. on Sunday. They demanded that the woman stop trying to climb the fence, but she refused and allegedly told them that she wanted to be arrested.

So, that is exactly what happened. The 36-year-old suspect, Tiffany R. Hurd, was arrested for criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct. Deputies say she was intoxicated and had a backpack with her.
Hurd was initially spotted by a deputy leaving the premises after finishing his shift. After several failed attempts to get her to leave, the deputy called for backup. It is not known how long she was trying to break into the jail.
Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones found the suspects actions pretty peculiar.
“Her actions really caught me by surprise,” said Sheriff Jones. “I know the economy is bad right now, but I didn’t think it was so bad that someone would actually try to break IN to jail. I’ve seen a lot throughout my career, but this one is truly unique. I will probably never say that I’ve now ‘seen it all,’ but this one sure comes close. You just never really know what some people are thinking and why they do some of the things they do. Wow—I wonder what the next surprise will be.”
