Mugshot o' the day

Twin Falls Idaho resident Lori Brutsche-Ely, 41, was charged with four felony counts of battery against police officers, "another felony for allegedly destroying jail equipment, and misdemeanor charges of battery, indecent exposure and malicious injury to property." The helpful Idaho Mountain Express even provides a mugshot.

...Hailey officer Shelly Pharis wrote in a probable cause affidavit that when she arrived at the bar she found Brutsche-Ely, completely unclothed, outside and in front of the nightclub yelling at Mint security personnel and patrons who had followed the fracas outside.

Brutsche-Ely was charged with four crimes for things she allegedly did in or outside of the Mint. The misdemeanor indecent exposure charge alleges that Brutsche-Ely illegally exposed her private parts in public, while the misdemeanor battery charge alleges that she kicked Mint security man Mike Kimball in the groin.

...Pharis, with the assistance of other officers, was able to transport Brutsche-Ely to jail, where four other crimes allegedly occurred. While in a holding cell, Brutsche-Ely allegedly broke a sprinkler head by striking it with a folded blanket, flooding the cell and causing more than $1,500 in damage.

She also allegedly battered jailer Laura Bowling by "slapping the victim's face and grabbing and pulling her hair." She also allegedly battered Sgt. Curtis Miller.

"We were still trying to control the female when I felt pain in my left shoulder," Miller wrote in a probable cause affidavit. "I looked and observed the woman biting me...

Executive summary: naked woman kicks cops in groin, requires five armed police officers to be subdued, and then goes all Al Franken on the jailers. Word is that the Democrat Party is eyeing her for a Senate run.
