LUFKIN, Texas (KTRE) - Officers with the Lufkin Police Department arrested a 31-year-old woman on an assault of a public servant charge after she hit one of the LPD officer escorting her from the town’s Walmart store Thursday night.

Angelina Nicole Davidson, of Lufkin, is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on a third-degree felony assault of a public servant charge, a Class A misdemeanor evading arrest charge, a Class A misdemeanor bond forfeiture charge, and a Class C misdemeanor assault - family violence charge.

Collectively, Davidson’s bond amount was set at $3,000 for the three misdemeanor charges. No bond amount has been set for her felony charge.
