A trial date has been scheduled for the woman who allegedly brandished a knife after being arrested.
Officers with the Arkadelphia Police Department encountered defendant Angela Smith, 32, during a response to possible fight at the Pine Court Apartments.
Smith refused to calm down several times and continued swearing before finally departing the scene.
Authorities heard screaming as they were preparing to leave the scene. They later found Smith behind a building allegedly cursing and swinging her arms around in the air. Smith was arrested for disorderly conduct.
As officers were placing Smith in a patrol car, she advised them that she was in possession of a knife. A pat-down was conducted, but netted no discovery of weapons. As the car made its way to the Clark County Jail, Smith allegedly tried to kick out the back passenger side glass by hitting it with her feet.
The defendant reiterated that she had a knife and allegedly made threats. The driving officer turned his head around upon Smith’s request and witnessed a knife blade headed in the direction of his face through the patrol car’s cage. He pulled over and other officers arrived after being alerted.
Smith was taken out of the backseat and the knife was taken from her. She then spat in the face and arms of an Arkadelphia corporal. She repeated the spitting again at the jail.
In addition to disorderly conduct, Smith was charged with second-degree battery and aggravated assault. A trial date has been set for Aug. 21.
