Kansas City Missouri Police Officer Arrested for DUI This Morning.

A Kansas City Missouri Police Officer was arrested early Wednesday morning for driving under the influence.

According to authorities, KCPD Officer Megan Laffoon was pulled over in Clay County by a Missouri Highway Patrol trooper around 3:20 a.m. on Wednesday, February 8th, 2012.

Missouri Highway Patrol troopers allege that Laffoon assaulted a trooper and resisted arrest. She is now facing four counts: DUI, lane violation, assault of a law enforcement officer, and resisting arrest.

According to the probable cause statement, Laffoon scratched the arresting officer on the neck with her fingernails and head-butted another officer as they tried to place her under arrest.

When she was taken to the Clay County Detention Center, it took seven officers to place Laffoon in a restraint chair, according to the probable cause statement.

Now I haven't seen pictures of this officer, but she must be an MMA fighter or something, scratching necks, headbutting people, and requiring SEVEN officers to place her in restraints... wow.

All of the facts regarding the arrest and the stop have not been released yet, but it's always interesting to see how cases against police turn out.

Thanks to Jason M. Vaughn, and Fox 4 News Kansas City for the story.
