A Huron City, Kansas, official is facing felony charges after she allegedly bit a corrections officer’s thumb so hard, she broke a bone.
Councilwoman Carol Fowler, 48, was taken into custody after failing to appear for a warrant. Police allegedly had to use stun guns because she was fighting back, kicking and scratching.
While in custody, Fowler refused to follow booking-process instructions and, when Atchison County Jail staff tried to remove her jewelry and personal items, she bit down on one officer’s thumb, breaking the bone.
Fowler faces three felony charges for the incidents, including battery on a law-enforcement officer.
