Woman faces assault charges for spitting on someone’s face, then kicking an officer during arrest

From staff reports

A woman is facing assault charges for spitting on someone, then kicking an officer during arrest.

At about 1:40 p.m. Monday, Kallie Powell, 27, showed up to a residence in the 150 block of S. Oak Street in Browne’s Addition “intoxicated and belligerent,” court documents state. While speaking to a man, and for unknown reasons, Powell spit on his face, “intentionally leaving saliva all over his face,” according to court documents.

The man called police, and when they arrived, Powell apparently kicked at the arresting officer.The officer was uninjured.

Police are recommending charges of city assault for the spitting, and third-degree assault for the kick.
