SEATTLE — Seattle Police officers struggled to control a female bar patron who stripped off her clothes, covered her upper body in hot pink duct tape and fought off all comers Saturday night in Lower Queen Anne.

The woman was asked to leave a bar before 8 p.m. That’s when she began stripping and “placing the hot pink duct tape on her upper body area,” the Seattle Police Department said. She then grabbed and injured the bartender’s arm and attacked another female customer, clawing at and scratching the victim’s eyes and face.

When police got to the scene, the suspect ran down the street into the restroom of a combination Kentucky Fried Chicken and Taco Bell. She was escorted from the restroom and handcuffed, but as she was being placed into a squad car, the suspect began kicking at the legs and head of one of the officers.

As one officer tried to pull her back into the car, she managed to do an “over-the-head backflip” and tumble out the open rear door of the other side of the car. Once outside, she kicked an officer in the head, causing a concussion, then kicked another in the hand, severing the tendon in his right pinkie finger. A third officer suffered swelling and slight dislocation after being kicked in the jaw.

Eventually, all three officers and the suspect were transported to Harborview Medical Center, where the suspect became so wild that she had to be put under with medication.

The suspect was booked into King County Jail for investigation of assault.
