Sheriff: Woman Faces Dozens Of Charges After Assaulting Officers

Posted: Updated:

FRANKLIN COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)-- A woman is in jail after officials say she assaulted multiple officers during her initial arrest. 

It happened around 4:53 a.m. Sunday on 1-64 at the 46 mile marker. Deputies were called out to a report of a vehicle driving the wrong way and were able to stop the vehicle at mile marker 52.

The sheriff says the driver of the vehicle, Darlane Besand, appeared to be extremely intoxicated and became hostile when deputies attempted an arrest. While attempting to handcuff her, she bit one deputy on the forearm. Pepper spray was used and successfully allowed an arrest.

The sheriff goes on to say in his report that Besand continued to be violent. She was transported to the hospital for medical clearance and a blood test. A blood test was refused, and she continued to scream obscene gestures at the nurses and doctors who were trying to help her. While attempting to place Besband back into handcuffs, she kicked one deputy in the stomach and clawed another deputy's hand. When deputies attempted to place her back into the cruiser, she again kicked a deputy. When she arrived at the jail, she began assaulting jail staff and had to be restrained once again.

Besand is facing charges of: 

  • Wanton Endangerment 1st Degree (6 Counts)
  • Wanton Endangerment 1st Degree Police Officer
  • Assault 3rd Degree- Police Officer (4 Counts)
  • Operating a Motor Vehicle Under the Influence of Alcohol (Aggravated)
