Drunk Wichita Falls Woman Arrested For Assaulting Paramedic
A 52-year-old Wichita Falls woman was arrested for striking paramedics that were attempting to wake her after she passed out at a local restaurant.
According to KAUZ, officers were dispatched to Cheddar's restaurant Tuesday to assist paramedics with an intoxicated woman, Gina Blackburn, who had passed out in a booth. Paramedics performed a sternum rub to wake Blackburn, who began cursing at the officers and paramedics before punching a paramedic and passing out again. Paramedics woke Blackburn again and she repeatedly struck a paramedic in the thigh with her forearm. Blackburn was then removed from the restaurant and charged with Assault of a Public Servant.
A search on MugShots.com shows a previous arrest for Blackburn for DWI repetition.
