The officer told her several times, he indicated, before he attempted to place Ring in cuffs but she began to pull away. He was able to place her in handcuffs and added a refusal submit charge to the warrants she was facing.

Prior to putting her in the back seat and while searching her, the officer reported the woman told him she had a small baggie of meth in her jacket pocket. It was about $20 worth, the report said.

She faces a felony charge for the drugs and misdemeanors for the charges of resisting arrest and failure to appear.
