Idaho woman charged with felony over chewed seat

The Associated Press

SANDPOINT, Idaho — A northern Idaho woman has been charged with a felony after police said she chewed up the upholstery of a patrol car seat.

The Bonner County Daily Bee reports that 42-year-old Staci Anne Spence was charged late last week with felony malicious injury to property and misdemeanors including resisting arrest and battery on an officer. Spence has not yet entered a plea according to court records, and a phone listing for Spence could not be found.

Prosecutors said Spence was arrested Thursday morning after deputies came to her home to investigate a battery report.

The deputies wrote in a court statement that when they arrived at the Bonner County Jail, they found that Spence had chewed through the patrol vehicle’s upholstery and into the foam cushioning.
