North Idaho Woman Charged After Chewing Car Seat
SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) — A northern Idaho woman has been charged with a felony after police said she chewed up the upholstery of a patrol car seat. The Bonner County Daily Bee reports that 42-year-old Staci Anne Spence was charged late last week with felony malicious injury to property and misdemeanors including resisting arrest and battery on an officer. Spence has not yet entered a plea according to court records, and a phone listing for Spence could not be found.
Prosecutors said Spence was arrested Thursday morning after deputies came to her home to investigate a battery report. The deputies wrote in a court statement that when they arrived at the Bonner County Jail, they found that Spence had chewed through the patrol vehicle's upholstery and into the foam cushioning.
