A criminal complaint filed by Deputy J.A. Conner said Mills was "covered in blood wearing a glove on her left hand, and she also had a pocket knife on the right-hand pocket of her trousers". During that time, officers said she became combative and was arrested.
Upon being questioned as to why she was bloody, Mills told Mercer County Deputy J.A. Conner she had cut two of her fingers only to change her story and say she'd been attacked and "thrown through a glass door". She would not identify her alleged attacker.
