A Kansas councilwoman is facing felony charges after being accused of biting a corrections officer in the thumb and broke a bone.
Carol Fowler, 48, is a city council member in Huron, KS.
She was in jail for a failure to appear warrant when a corrections officer confronted her about breaking the dress code.
They attempted to remove her jewelry and that's when she bit the officer's thumb, authorities say.
A second officer was also injured.
From a scuffle on that day, she faces three felony charges of battery on a law-enforcement officer and interference with law enforcement.
