As she was being escorted out, Perez freed one of her hands from her handcuffs and fought the two deputies that were leading her out. While Perez was uninjured, the two deputies suffered minor injuries.

Perez could face two charges of second degree assault, a class 4 felony, due to the incident.

No charges against Perez have been processed.
