A woman was arrested in Purcellville Jan. 17 after allegedly spitting on a law enforcement officer while publicly intoxicated, according to the Purcellville Police Department.
Staff at the Purcellville Pub — located in the 700 block of East Main Street — reportedly refused service to an intoxicated woman and escorted her from the restaurant around 6:17 p.m.
After unsuccessfully attempting to return to the restaurant, the subject left and began "stumbling through the shopping plaza," officials say.
Authorities found the subject, later identified as 39-year-old Erica Vorhees, laying on the ground near the Loudoun Valley High School practice field, where she reportedly spoke vulgarities to the officers.
Authorities say the woman spat and attempted to urinate on the officers as they tried to help her to her feet.
Police arrested the woman and transported her to jail, where she spat on the arresting officer again.
Voorhees, of Purcellville, was charged with drunk in public and assault on a law enforcement officer.
Voorhees is president of the Parent Teacher Student Organization at Woodgrove High School, according to LCPS.org.
