Grandmother charged after fighting officer

A grandmother was charged with obstruction of an officer after a fight during juvenile court Wednesday, according to an incident report.

The situation began when a young man tried to resist officers' attempts to put handcuffs on him around 2 p.m. During the time, his grandmother, Dora Ward, 52, of the 2400 block of Damascus Road, came up behind the officer and began to choke him.

Ward is the mother of Justin "Jed" Elmore, who was shot and killed during a confrontation with deputies at the Cherry Tree Crossing Apartments in 2008.
