Arrest of Melissa Dyann Penn

The York City Police Department is investigating the arrest of Melissa Dyann Penn on 7/3/2017 after her involvement in a fight at Pandora's Box 466 E. Market St.  after viewing a video on social media.  This video is a very short few seconds of what occurred and we have video from multiple sources we are looking at.  We would ask that people not draw conclusions regarding a small portion of the incident  and we hope to release more video in the future.  Every York City Police Officer is expected to treat our citizens with respect and professionalism but if physical force is used against our officers they will respond according to our policies and the laws of this Commonwealth.  Anyone with information regarding this incident or with any further video is asked to contact the York City Police Department Internal Affairs Division.
