LAWMEN: Woman Bit Deputy On Face, Spit On Deputies

A woman is facing charges after authorities say she was found with drugs, bit a deputy on the face and spit on deputies.

Ashley Couch, age 25 of North Boyd Road in Castlewood, Virginia, was arrested in Beaufort County Tuesday, around midnight.

Authorities report they responded to a vehicle accident and possible domestic assault on Old Blounts Creek Road in Chocowinity and took Couch into custody because they suspected she was driving while impaired.

They say Couch tried to damage the inside of the trooper's vehicle and when she was moved to a deputy vehicle with a prisoner barricade, she began to spit on the deputies.

Lawmen say they found the drugs in her wrecked vehicle. Couch was taken to the hospital for blood tests to determine if she was drunk or on illegal drugs. Lawmen say after the procedure, Couch was being put into a car when she bit a deputy on his face and continued to spit.

Couch was locked up under a $42,000 secured bond.

    The first admendment does not have anything to do with something being appropiate. He has a right to speak his mind, but I think anyone who works with the public should not comment on a story on a website especially under the name LEO. Maybe he should use anonymous or BOB. So shut the f up.

      yes, its not her fault. people cannot help their actions. and that deputy shouldnt complain if he gets a disease from her bites, because youre right, its probably karma. of course, the sarcasm doesnt translate, just trying to show you how stupid your post really is.

    i had rather have the high speed chase charge hung me like the lady in the previous story than this. drug charges are bad enough but spitting on and biting our law officers, that is just going to far. do pray she gets help.

    I know what they say about crazy girls, but she's the type to kill all your hunting dogs, slash your tires, and curse at your mama. Or as my father in law puts it, that's the screwin' ya git for the screwin' ya got. I'm sure more than one young man had his first good nights sleep in a long time after they took her off.
