Officer Robert D. Thomas, who was working the desk at the time, went to the cell twice and ordered Ms. Brewer to be quiet. Each time the suspect refused and cursed him, police said.

When she started the banging again, Officer Thomas ordered the suspect to hand over both shoes through the cell window. She again refused. When Officer Thomas said that he would enter the cell to get the shoes, the woman challenged him to do so and cursed him again, police said.

Officer Thomas went into the cell and the suspect allegedly flailed her arms and hit him. After he got control of both of her arms, she allegedly bit his left hand. He slapped her on the left side of the head with an open right hand and knocked her down. As he was taking the shoes out of the cell, the suspect allegedly spat on him twice, police said.
