HOUSTON – A woman is accused of spitting in the face of Houston ‘ s chief of police, while he arrested her for allegedly stealing items from a drug store.
KPRC-TV reports 40-year-old Danielle Paris remained jailed Monday. She is charged with harassment of a public official — a felony — for allegedly spitting on the police, Art Acevedo.
Prosecutors say Acevedo was off-duty and shopping at a Walgreens on Saturday, when he saw Paris items from the store and harassing customers outside.
