On February 12, 2011, Shoreline police officers were called to a disturbance at the Enterprise Rental Car Agency at 14825 Aurora Avenue North.

According to one of the salesmen, he was working in the car lot with some customers when he saw a woman stumbling onto the lot. He saw the woman fall and went to help her. When the salesman got to her, she charged him but he was able to move out of the way. 

At one point, the woman began yelling obscenities and attempted to assault the customers. He attempted to walk her off the lot at which time the woman attempted to pull him to the ground. The salesman started running, but the woman chased him and tackled him from behind. He tried to get up and the woman grabbed onto his foot to stop him. The salesman managed to get his foot free and get away.

When the officers arrived, the woman had fled. They began checking the area for the woman. Officer McNaughton pulled into a nearby motel and saw a woman matching the suspect description in the lobby sitting on a bench starting to slump over. When Officer McNaughton walked into the office, the suspect, in an unprovoked attack, charged Officer McNaughton and punched her in the face.

Officer McNaughton used a hair/arm hold and assisted her to the ground where she placed her into custody. The suspect continued to struggle throughout the arrest and even feigned passing out. Due to her state of intoxication, the officers requested AID respond to check her out. The suspect refused to cooperate with AID and maintained her belligerent and assaultive behavior throughout the entire incident.

Ultimately, the suspect was booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Assault.
