Henderson, Texas (KETK) — A Louisiana woman was arrested last week after she allegedly kicked a Rusk County deputy in the throat.
According to Chief Deputy Charles Helton, at 4:30 a.m. on Thursday, a woman was taken into custody for DWI in the Walmart parking lot off Highway 79. While the suspect, Amanda Kluth, 27, of Youngsville, Louisiana, was being placed into the patrol car, she kicked a deputy in the throat. At this time, she was pepper sprayed.
Authorities took Kluth to a local hospital where she was checked and released. Deputies then transferred her to the county jail. She was charged with DWI, resisting arrest and assault on a peace officer. She has since been released on bond.
