When officers Emerson and Terado asked Williams to get out of her car, they said she refused. Thus, they were forced to physically, pull her from the vehicle and place her in handcuffs. But Williams was allegedly uncooperative and verbally abusive toward Terado, as they escorted her to a patrol vehicle. Williams refused to step into the patrol vehicle, resulting in officers having to physically place her into the car. During that process Williams kicked Terado, in the face while wearing a six inch stiletto causing a laceration to her face, according to police. Williams is transferred to another patrol vehicle, where again she was uncooperative and resisted officers. During this process, she slipped a hand out of her handcuffs and struck Emerson in the face. Ultimately, officers were able to re-secure her hands in handcuffs, place Williams upright in the seat, and buckle her up for a safe transport to the Sherman police department to continue the DWI process.

Williams was charged with: aggravated assault against a public servant, assault peace officer, DWI, two count of obstruction and retaliation and resisting arrest.
