A local Kansas legislature is facing felony charges after she allegedly a bit of a corrections officer’s thumb so hard, she broke a leg.
Huron City Councilwoman Carol Fowler, 48, was taken into custody June 29 after failing to appear for a warrant, KSHB reported. Police allegedly had to use stun guns, because she was fighting back, kicking and scratching, the Kansas City Star added.
On 2 July, while in custody, Fowler refused to follow the booking process instructions and when Atchison County Jail staff tried to remove her jewelry and personal items, she bit down on one of the officer’s thumb, breaking the bone, Sheriff Jack Laurie told the Atchison Globe.
Requests for comment from Fowler and a person as its attorney were not immediately answered.
According to the province’s website, Fowler was still listed as a member of the board at the time of this report.
Fowler is facing three felony charges for 29 June and 2 July incidents, including battery on a law enforcement officer.
