SANTA FE, Texas – Officers investigating a domestic disturbance Tuesday were scratched and bitten by a woman determined to administer her wrath upon the man with whom she was in conflict.
When officers arrived at 15419 Santa Fe Drive, a confrontation was in progress between 27-year old Ariel Garrett and a man who police did not identify.
When officer Lino Garcia and Sgt. Eric Bruss intervened in the squabble, Garrett directed her wrath toward them. Police say she bit Garcia on his finger and scratched Bruss.
Captain Wayne Kessler said the woman was cuffed and taken to jail where she was evaluated by Mental Health deputies. She was later charged with Assaulting a Police Officer and Resisting Arrest.
Garrett is being held in the Galveston County Jail in lieu of $6,500 bail.
