While alerting the medics, officers closed the door, and Clark kicked the window about three times. When officers told her to stop, she said, “Or what?” before kicking an officer’s leg, so officers hobble-restrained her feet. Throughout her encounter with the police, she stated, “I am going to kill you, you f*cking pig!” multiple times. Medics arrived, evaluated her, and declared she was healthy enough to transport. Then, Clark was placed back into the patrol car, where she wet herself.
