BELLEVUE, Ohio – Police in Ohio have arrested a woman for assault for spitting blood on a nurse and a police officer after her arrest for drunk driving.
Police responding to a home on a call of a domestic dispute early Thursday morning would find a man there with a mark under his eye. He informed them that he had been struck by 27-year-old Tiffany Pocock. Officers would also found a mini van with its driver’s side door ajar and a bottle of whiskey sitting in the center console with a third of it missing.
The missing third was found nearby, inside an intoxicated Pocock who was placed under arrest for OVI. That’s when she began fighting with officers and attempted to injure herself. An attempt she was quite successful at, judging by her mugshot.
First she started by repeatedly ramming her head into the police car door as she was being helped into it. Then, once inside the car, she began ranting about missing an appointment later that morning and started banging her face against the patrol car’s safety divider.
She slammed her head against the glass divider until, according to police, she began bleeding heavily and they decided to take a detour to a nearby hospital so they wouldn’t get sued. While being escorted into the emergency room, Pocock began spitting blood on the police officer as well as a nurse.
Later that day she had charges of driving under suspension and two counts of assault added to her original OVI charge.
I see that they have a bandage of some sort on Pocock’s forehead, but I wonder why they didn’t do something about the rest of her busted face. But then again, had they tried to cover up anything looking like an injury, I suppose her mugshot would have looked more like this.Tags: alcohol, Assault, Crime, DUI, Ohio, spit, Tiffany Pocock
