A York woman was arrested on May 31 after police say she was found in a ditch, spat on medics who came to help her and attacked a police officer.
Adrianna Grace Wilson, 32, was charged with possession of marijuana, public intoxication, resisting arrest, obstruction of justice, destruction of property and two counts of assault and battery on a police officer or paramedic, according to James City County Police Department spokeswoman Stephanie Williams.
James City County police officers were called to the 3300 block of Ironbound Road to help James City firefighters and medics after a woman found in a ditch became combative and spat on a medic, Williams said.
The woman, later identified as Wilson, resisted arrest when officers tried to handcuff her and put her in a police cruiser, according to Williams.
Wilson hurled profanities at the officers and banged her hands on the window and damaged it, Williams said.
Officers saw Wilson had moved her handcuffs to the front of her body and opened the cruiser’s door to put them back behind her, according to Williams. That’s when Wilson tried to get out and kicked an officer.
Wilson was taken to the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail where correctional officers put a spit mask on her and put her in a restraint chair as she continued to resist arrest and spit, Williams said.
According to online court records, Wilson remains under arrest although she is not listed as an inmate at the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail as of Tuesday.
Wilson has one previous conviction in 2017 in Williamsburg-James City County General District Court of public intoxication or swearing, according to online court records.
If convicted, Wilson faces as much as four years in jail and $10,000 in fines on the charges of assault and battery of a police officer or paramedic, destruction of property and obstruction of justice, according to Virginia Code.
