Carol Fowler did not go quietly when deputies showed up at her door last week to arrest her on an outstanding warrant, authorities say.
From accounts given to local media by the Atchison County Sheriff’s office, the arrest devolved into a fight involving kicking and scratching, and at one point a deputy tased Fowler to get her under control, Kansas City Star News reports.
Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie told the Globe that deputies took Fowler into custody at her home in Huron around 11:30 a.m. on Friday.
They arrested her on a warrant for failure to show up in Atchison County District Court on December charges of being a pedestrian under the influence and interfering with law enforcement, according to the Globe.
As a result of this incident and a Friday, June 29, scuffle, Fowler faces three total felony charges of battery on a law enforcement officer, a misdemeanor battery on a law enforcement officer charge and a charge of interference with law enforcement.
Fowler has been jailed since the June 29 incident, which saw harm done to two sheriff’s deputies, one of whom suffered a bleeding injury. On that day, deputies originally sought to arrest Fowler on an outstanding Atchison County District Court warrant. Atchison News
