That's when a superior court marshal passing by tried to assist. The suspect allegedly grabbed her leg and bit her ankle.
The suspect also remained combative after being put into the backseat of a cop car. Officers had to use a stun gun to control her. She is even accused of kicking an officer, while at the holding cell at the Dededo Precinct.
