South Carolina police report that a Chesnee woman who tried to bite a deputy during her arrest said that she was the “Karate Kid” before assaulting the officer.
40-year-old Tracey McSwain Smith was being held in jail on Tuesday on charges including third-degree assault and battery.
Deputies say that Smith’s sister called police on Sunday to get medical attention for her.
When police asked Smith for her name, deputies say she held up her arms and one leg and said she was the “Karate Kid.”
Deputies say Smith slapped a deputy, breaking her sunglasses, and tried to bite an officer on the arm.
Police say that they shocked Smith with a Taser twice before she was handcuffed.
Smith told deputies she had used methamphetamine and huffed gasoline earlier on Sunday.
It wasn’t known if she had an attorney.
