WESTON, W.Va. (TCD) — A 30-year-old woman was arrested for allegedly stealing a truck and then fighting with police officers while claiming to be a U.S. Marshal.

According to court documents cited by WDTV-TV, on April 27, a man called West Virginia State Police and allegedly claimed Clarissa Burr stole his truck. Troopers reportedly learned that Burr was driving to Central Regional Jail and saying that her kids had been killed.

West Virginia State Police made contact with Burr, who allegedly fought troopers while they attempted to detain her. At one point, Burr reportedly said she was a U.S. Marshal and kicked a trooper. She also wanted to know their badge numbers and said she was “hunting pedophiles.”

Lewis County court records show Burr was arrested the same day on a charge of grand larceny and her bond was set at $20,000.

The Weston Democrat reports Burr was arrested in June 2019 because she was seen running down the street with a knife in her hand and carrying her young child, who was covered in blood. Investigators spoke with Burr’s father, who claimed she stabbed him on his hand during an argument about where she was taking her child. Burr also allegedly gave the baby to a random couple, but then took the child back.

She was arrested on charges of gross neglect of a child creating a substantial risk of death or serious bodily injury and malicious or unlawful assault.

  1. I can’t believe the audacity of Clarissa Burr to pretend to be a U.S. Marshal while causing chaos and endangering lives. It’s alarming to see her repeated pattern of reckless behavior and disregard for the safety of others. She clearly needs serious intervention and accountability for her actions.
