    Yikes! You should never do that to an officer. You can argue, but keep it respectful. He is the law, sometimes they might not always be the nicest officer, but don't make it worse by spitting. If he was over the top, you get his information and fie a complaint.

    Well, if she had been male, the cop could of pulled her shirt over her head to stop the spitting. But, he might of got in trouble pulling her shirt over her head.

    All you people sound like "Nancy Grace"...you have already convicted her without hearing her side of the story.

    'left of center with her headlights off?" God I hope there was alcohol involved.
    Wanna bet there are some OFAs out there somewhere on her?

    And this is newsworthy because?? My husband is a bail bondsman and he sees the same spitting drunks all of the time.

    Spitting on someone and living to tell about it is quite a feat nowadays.
