NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Nacogdoches County Sheriff's deputies arrested a 39-yeat-old Houston woman on Wednesday after she allegedly fought to keep from getting arrested, and bit a deputy on the arm before she stomped his foot.

Marcella Caldwell is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a third-degree felony charge of assaulting a public servant and two Class misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest and bail jumping/failure to appear. Collectively, her bail has been set at $17,500.

According to the arrest affidavit, NCSO deputies were dispatched out to a residence in the 400 block of County Road 111 in reference to a disturbance at approximately 8:18 p.m. Wednesday. While they were en route, the dispatcher told them the woman had an outstanding arrest warrant out of Nacogdoches County.

When one of the deputies arrived on the scene, he told Caldwell about the warrant, and she allegedly told him she was "not going to jail." As the deputy tried to put handcuffs on Caldwell, she pulled her arm away from him and then punched him in the upper chest, the affidavit stated.

The deputy pushed Caldwell to the floor to keep her from hurting him or the other detectives, and she allegedly continued to resist by putting her arms under her body, so the deputy couldn't put the cuffs on her.

When the deputies started to pull Caldwell to her feet, she allegedly bit one of the deputies on the right forearm. She also stomped on both of his feet.
