WASHINGTON, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A Washington woman is accused of attempting to spit on officers while she refused to leave her car as it was being towed.

Victoria Woodard, 32, was charged in Franklin County Associate Circuit Court with one count of third-degree felony assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest and two misdemeanor charges for assaulting police officers.

Washington Police was called out to the 600 block of Walnut St. for a disturbance. According to a probable cause statement, officers were told a tow company was attempting to repossess Woodard’s vehicle when she got inside the car and refused to get out.

Woodard then started her car, put it in reverse and attempted to back the car from the tow dolly attached to the tow truck. The tow truck driver then raised the tow dolly to stop her from driving off the tow dolly.

Police attempted to stop Woodard from leaving, but she still refused, according to the probable cause statement.

Woodard attempted to spit at officers and police used a baton to break the passenger side front window.

According to the probable cause statement, Woodard picked up the broken glass, threw it and struck an officer.

Police tasered her and she exited the vehicle and was immediately arrested.

Woodard was taken to a local hospital where police say she continued to verbally abuse officers.

Woodard is being held in the Franklin County jail on a $20,000 cash only bond.
