At the end of their investigation, an officer told the woman she wouldbe released.

"She advised him to leave her in handcuffs because she needed to go tojail," Yarberry said. "Due to the fact that no charges were filed, thesuspect was released."

As soon as she was released, the woman turned and slapped the officer'sforearm while yelling again, she needed to go to jail.

The officer was not injured.
