By PoliceOne staff

WESTERVILLE, Ohio — A woman arguing with her mother was arrested Tuesday night after darting across an intersection, threatening and kicking at officers, and shattering the back window of a patrol car.

Ashlie Tesi reportedly punched and bit her mother and ran, and threatened to fight police from the moment she spotted them, according to CBS.

"She began charging the officers, yelling that she was going to kick- you know, fight them. She wanted to fight them and beat them up," Sgt. Rich Lyon, of Genoa Township Police Department said.

"While trying to place her in the back of the car, she began kicking, kicked a couple officers. Eventually, a TASER had to be deployed to try to gain control of her.”

Surveillance cameras caught Tesi kick a window out of the cruiser back at the station, spraying glass onto one of the officers.

Tesi is facing assault on an officer, and vandalism, the police station reports.
