LORAIN, OH (WOIO) -

A 21-year-old woman slapped with charges after climbing a fire truck and refusing to come down while drunk on New Year's Eve.

The incident happened shortly after 1 a.m. at the fire station on Broadway Avenue in Lorain.

According to firefighters, Miranda Lewis came to the station intoxicated and screaming for help. When she was let inside the station, she said she was going to be raped and started running around. She eventually climbed up one of the fire trucks and refused to come down.

Police were called, and tried to coax Lewis down, but she refused and clung to a large water nozzle. It took several officers to pry Lewis off of the nozzle and bring her down to safety.

Lewis is charged with disorderly conduct by intoxication and disorderly conduct persisting.

Police tell 19 Action News that had there been a fire emergency during Lewis' incident, response may have been delayed.
