CITY OF SHASTA LAKE, Calif. - A woman who was resisting arrest by Shasta County Sheriff's deputies tried to bite police K9 officer Hondo.

It started in the early minutes of Sunday morning when a report came in about a woman on the railroad crossing above Shasta Dam Blvd. throwing rocks at passing vehicles.

Deputies responded and saw 150 baseball sized rocks in the roadway. Then located 46- year old Janet Paulene Wilson of Redding up on the railroad crossing.

Deputies said Wilson was uncooperative and ignored their commands. They became concerned about her safety when she started yelling and backing away from deputies. They were concerned about the elevation of the tracks, large rocks with areas of uneven footing, and the possibility of approaching train traffic. They also said the woman showed signs of intoxication.

Attempts to physically remove Wilson from the railroad crossing were rebuffed by Wilson, who attempted to strike a deputy in the face with her hand. When Wilson picked up a large rock deputies became even more concerned and brought in K-9 deputy Hondo to assist.

Deputies said Wislon struck K9 Hondo multiple times with her fist and even attempted to bite him.

Wilson was taken to a nearby hospital for medical clearance and then was booked for resisting arrest with threat or violence, public intoxication and interfering with a police dog.

K9 Hondo was not injured during the incident.
