Accused Drunk Driver Knees Officer in Groin, Vamps for Mugshot

Yavapai County Sheriff's Office(PRESCOTT, Ariz.) -- A DUI suspect is in hot water, but she remembered to turn her post-arrest frown upside down in time for her mugshot. The Arizona woman became belligerent when police approached her for allegedly driving drunk. She kneed a police officer in the groin, yelled profanities and fought back when she was placed under arrest, according to a Prescott Police Department report.

Back at the police station, 24-year-old Michelle Watson brazenly posed for her mugshot with disheveled hair, a big smile and two thumbs up.

Police were called when Watson was observed driving her white Honda Civic erratically, hitting numerous curbs and driving on the sidewalk, according to the police report.

When an officer approached her, he observed that Watson had “dilated pupils and red, watery and bloodshot eyes” and that her “breath was heavy with an intoxicating beverage,” according to a Prescott Police Department report.

“Watson was wearing a purse which was draped over her shoulder. Ofc. Wing attempted to remove the purse. When doing so, Watson, using her right knee struck Ofc. Wing in the crotch,” according to the police report. “Watson was then taken to the ground and placed in handcuffs.”

Watson was arrested and charged with aggravated assault of a peace officer, resisting arrest and driving under the influence.  Her DUI charge was categorized as “DUI-Super Extreme” in the police report. She posted bond and was released on Nov. 18.
