DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. – A Florence woman is in the Douglas County Jail after deputies say she threw a can of pork and beans at a deputy.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said a deputy stopped a Chrysler PT Cruiser in the 1400 block of Highway Avenue just before 3 p.m. on Sunday.
Passenger Holly Sigmund, 54, had a warrant for her arrest, authorities said. She got out of the vehicle and reportedly became confrontational. The deputy tried to put her into handcuffs, and Sigmund resisted arrest, the sheriff’s office said.
That’s when Sigmund reportedly grabbed the canned food and threatened to throw it at the deputy, who tried to use a Taser but it was ineffective. Sigmund threw the can at the deputy, but missed him. She reportedly kicked the deputy in the ribs twice before she was taken into custody.
Sigmund faces charges of assault on a public safety officer, resisting arrest, interfering with a peace officer, third-degree criminal mischief, and second-degree disorderly conduct and was taken into custody on a warrant.
The deputy was treated for minor injuries.
