Trinity County Sheriff's Office: Intoxicated woman spat on deputy, kicked him

TRINITY COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A Trinity County Sheriff's Office sergeant arrested a 28-year-old woman Sunday after she allegedly spat in his face and kicked him in the kneecap after he responded to a disturbance call on Dogwood Street and found that she had driven her vehicle into her boyfriend's truck.

Christina Neal, of Trinity, was booked into the Trinity Police Department jail on a third-degree felony assault of a public servant charge, a third-degree harassment against a public servant charge, and a Class C misdemeanor charge. Later, she was also charged with third-degree felony harassment by a person in a correctional or detention facility.

Neal also had outstanding misdemeanor capias warrants.
Sgt. Jeremy Alexander with the Trinity County Sheriff's Office said he responded to a disturbance call at a home in the 100 block of Dogwood Street Sunday night. When he arrived at the scene, he found that Neal had allegedly slammed her vehicle into her boyfriend's truck.

Neal was belligerent, and she was acting intoxicated, Alexander said.
Alexander said when he put handcuffs on Neal, she spat in his face. Later, she allegedly kicked him in the kneecap and reopened a cut that he already had there.

Once Neal was in custody, she was taken to the Trinity Police Department. While she was at the jail, she threw a cup of water at an officer, Alexander said.

Neal's boyfriend chose not to press charges against Neal for slamming into his truck Alexander said.
