Woman is Sentenced for Spitting on Officer

A St. Michael woman accused of spitting on a police officer has been sentenced to serve a year in prison.

21-year-old Meggie Leftbear was charged after being accused of being drunk and combative at a Devils Lake home on July 22.

Authorities say she unsuccessfully tried to run from officers, resisted arrested and spit on an officer’s face.

Leftbear pleaded guilty last week to felony contact by bodily fluids and two misdemeanors, preventing arrest and disorderly conduct.
