Woman refused to exit car, bit Lincoln corrections officer’s face, police say

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A woman was arrested early Saturday morning after she bit a corrections officer in the face, Lincoln Police say.

Around 2:20 a.m., officers found a vehicle near 14th and O Streets with its hazard lights on.

The driver, later identified as 22-year-old Fiona Walker, then drove off and almost hit an officer in the street, police say.

Officers later stopped Walker, who police say appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, near 13th and N Streets.

Walker refused to get out of the car, and additional officers were called in to help take her into custody, according to police.

After refusing to take a DUI breath test, Walker was taken to jail.  When she arrived, Walker, once again, refused to come out of the car.

As a corrections officer was trying to get Walker out, she bit them in the face, police say.

The officer had an “obvious bite impression” near their jawline, according to police.

Walker was arrested on suspicion of assault on an officer.

She was also cited on suspicion of DUI with a prior conviction, refusal of a chemical test, willful reckless driving and resisting arrest.
