SALT LAKE CITY — A West Jordan woman was charged with multiple crimes after driving drunk as well as inappropriately touching and repeatedly kicking her arresting officers.
Christy Wilson, 44, was charged with three counts of assault by a prisoner, a third-degree felony, two counts of retaliation against a witness, a third-degree felony, and misdemeanor charges of sexual battery, attempted sexual battery and driving under the influence of alcohol, according to documents filed Friday in 3rd District Court.
A man told police that he saw a vehicle swerving on the road and pulling up onto his parking strip. He spoke to the driver, whom he identified as Wilson, and told police that he could smell alcohol. The driver pulled away, nearly hitting a mailbox, and the man followed her until she drove over the sidewalk and onto the lawn of a church.
When officers arrived at the scene they found Wilson sitting in the vehicle and observed that she smelled of alcohol and exhibited other signs of intoxication. Wilson told the officers that she had been drinking alcohol and when she failed sobriety tests she was arrested. Wilson's blood was analyzed and was found to contain a blood alcohol content of .25.
During the arrest, Wilson kicked the officers multiple times, threatened to kill them and made several attempts to grab them inappropriately, according to court documents.
