Police: Woman arrested for attacking bar staff has impressive rsum
SEATTLE -- Proving that a modern woman can indeed have it all, a suspect arrested for attacking Capitol Hill bar employees early Tuesday claimed to be a police officer, law student, college graduate and mother, according to the Seattle Police Department.
According to the police report for the incident, officers were called to a bar in the 1100 block of East Pike Street shortly after 2:30 a.m. when a woman and her boyfriend assaulted employees.
Bar staff told officers they found the woman in the men's restroom and asked her to leave, but she grew belligerent, telling employees she was a Tukwila Police Department officer and a law student.
Not being swayed by that impressive resume, staff started escorting the woman out of the bar. During the trip outside, the woman punched employees multiple times and tried to bite one on the shoulder but couldn't "latch on," according to the report.
The woman's boyfriend saw her being escorted out of the bar, grabbed her in a bear hug and took her the rest of the way outside. But once outside, the boyfriend reportedly dropped the woman and punched a bar employee in the face, opening a large cut on his forehead.
According to the report, the boyfriend ran off before quickly returning to tell the woman to come with him, saying, "Come on before I kill them."
Meanwhile, the woman was still screaming at bar employees, drawing the attention of a Washington State Patrol trooper who had been directing traffic nearby.
When the trooper came over to find out what was going on, the boyfriend reportedly took off running and the trooper chased after him.
According to the report, Seattle Police Department officers arrived to find the woman drunk and slurring, screaming that her father was a Tukwila Police Department officer and she was a college graduate (apparently downgrading her earlier claims) and that she has children.
Officers arrested the woman for investigation of assault.
Meanwhile, the Washington State Patrol trooper was still chasing the boyfriend, who ended up surrendering once more officers joined the chase, according to the report. He was also arrested for investigation of assault.
Later while they were in adjacent holding cells, the boyfriend reportedly called out to his girlfriend, "Hey, baby, help me out. That punch was for you."
The punched bar employee, who officers had arrived to find covered in blood from the cut to his forehead, was taken to Harborview Medical Center for treatment.
