A 29-year-old Longview woman arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated bashed her face against the plastic divider in the back of a squad car Wednesday, then spit blood on a Washington State trooper who stopped to help her, according to a police report.

The trooper tried to pull Kristy Lena Williams over for speeding on northbound Interstate 5 near milepost 29, but she kept driving. Cowlitz County Sheriff’s deputies joined the chase until Williams pulled over at Kalama River Road.

As officers ordered her out of the car, Williams was “hostile and screaming,” according to the report.

Williams was handcuffed, then placed in the back of a trooper’s car, where she continued to yell and then struggled with a trooper who tried to attach her seat belt, authorities said.

Once the car was underway, police said, Williams “became enraged and started screaming.” She hit her head repeatedly against the partition between the front and back seats of the patrol car, causing her to bleed profusely.

The trooper stopped and another trooper arrived to help. Williams then “spit a mouthful of blood” in one of the troopers’ faces, according to the report.

A “spit hood” was slipped over Williams’ head, police said, and she was eventually restrained with straps.

Williams continued to struggle and scream at St. John Medical Center, where she was examined in the psych ward. She was then booked into the Cowlitz County Jail on suspicion of third-degree assault, driving while intoxicated, second-degree malicious mischief and obstructing a law enforcement officer.

    "Skoobie": Don't you mean, "Bongview"? Most people refer to our classy little town as "Methlehem" these days...
