DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - A St. Michael woman accused of spitting on a police officer has been sentenced to serve a year in prison.

Twenty-one-year-old Meggie Leftbear was charged after a July 22 incident in which she was accused of being drunk and combative at a Devils Lake residence. Authorities say she unsuccessfully tried to run from officers, resisted arrested and spit on an officer’s face.

Leftbear pleaded guilty Aug. 23 to felony contact by bodily fluids and two misdemeanors, preventing arrest and disorderly conduct. The Devils Lake Journal reports she said in court she was too drunk to remember the incident and acknowledged there was sufficient evidence to convict her.

Court documents show she was sentenced to two years in prison with one year suspended, two years of probation and $600 in fees.
