ROY Officers have arrested a woman accused of taunting a police service dog during a drunken driving arrest.
Police said the woman drove her car into a curb Monday night near 4400 South and 1900 West, blowing out a front tire. She then drove to a nearby 7-Eleven, where officers confronted her. Police said the woman appeared to be intoxicated.
"(The woman) said she could do whatever she liked and she would sue," Roy Police Chief Greg Whinham said Wednesday. "(The officer) explained that if she didn't stop causing a scene, she'd be arrested for intoxication and disorderly conduct."
The woman was ultimately arrested. As she was being placed in a police vehicle, officers said, a K-9 in the back began barking.
"(The woman) started barking and shaking her head toward the K-9, which became aggressive," Whinham said. "She continued barking and egging him on."
The 50-year-old woman was booked into the Weber County Jail for investigation of DUI, disorderly conduct, interfering with an arrest, violation of a driver's license, intoxication and taunting a police service dog, which is a class A misdemeanor.
