A 21-year-old Kennewick woman admitted kicking an officer who was trying to arrest her when concerned citizens reported her in the middle of a street naked and high on methamphetamine.
Lacynda R. McGill pleaded guilty to fourth-degree assault for the April 22 incident in Kennewick.
"I intentionally kicked a police officer who was trying to arrest me," she wrote in her plea statement.
Police were called by concerned citizens about a woman they found naked and yelling in the street. The residents didn't know McGill but offered their help, court documents said.
Never miss a local story.
When officers arrived, McGill was trying to get inside the house, documents said.
McGill, who had ingested meth, tried to attack Officer Jason Kiel by kicking and spitting at him as he tried to arrest her.
Documents state that while being checked out at a Tri-City hospital before going to jail, she attempted to bite and spit on medical staff.
McGill had been charged with third-degree assault. However, Deputy Prosecutor Christine Bennett said Kiel approved of the amendment to a lower charge because he was not injured and McGill was high on drugs, Bennett wrote in court documents explaining the reduction.
"She was in a manic state at the time of the assault," Bennett said.
McGill does not have any felony convictions. As a part of the deal, she must agree to a drug abuse evaluation and treatment, the prosecutor said.
Her recommended sentence will be 30 days in jail with 334 days suspended. Sentencing is set for June 28.
