A "highly intoxicated" woman refused to leave a bar and her actions led her to be put behind bars Sunday, according to an affidavit of probable cause from the Baton Rouge Police Department.

Just before midnight Sunday, 35-year-old Courtney Woods was asked to leave a bar in the 2300 block of Acadian in Baton Rouge. While she was leaving, reports say Woods struck the manager in the face. The manager decided to not file charges against her.

Multiple officers tried to get Woods in a police unit, but Woods struck the officers. Woods had to be sprayed with an aerosol spray, like pepper spray or mace, to stop resisting. 

While in the detainment area after the BRPD booking process, the probable cause report says Woods began sexually harassing several employees and refused to cooperate with verbal orders to stop, and refused to walk back to the cell. 

Woods was escorted back to the cell, and she threw her body down on the ground and began to kick and scream. She kicked a deputy and spit on another deputy twice.

Woods was placed in a separate cell because of her aggressive behavior.

Woods was charged with resisting arrest, two counts of battery on a police officer, disturbing the peace intoxicated, and simple battery. She is being held in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a $20,000 bond.
