An Evans woman became combative early Friday after deputies pulled her vehicle over to find out if she was involved in a single-vehicle wreck.
When she was stopped by authorities, Ophelia Pantera Overton, 19, of the 770 block of Laurel Springs Court, first refused to get out of her vehicle, according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident report.
Once she was out of the car, Overton then refused several times to put her cell phone on the ground, the report stated, and when a deputy tried to reach for the phone, Overton became combative and pushed him away.
While she was being put on the ground and handcuffed, Overton screamed profanities, spit and tried to kick deputies, the report stated. Deputies then carried her to the back of the patrol car, where she kicked both rear windows off the door frame.
She continued to spit at deputies on the ride to the jail, where she had to be placed in a restraint chair, the report stated.
Overton was charged with willful obstruction of law enforcement officers, interference with government property and failure to maintain lane.
She was released from jail Saturday after posting bond set at $8,500.
