A 28-year-old woman is facing charges after police say she threatened to kill an Odessa Police officer and blow up the Odessa Police Department during a disturbance call. 

Police say they responded to the disturbance at about 11:04 p.m. Saturday in the 4600 block of Oakwood. 

When officers arrived they spoke to the subjects involved and learned that one woman, later identified as Regina Martinez, grabbed someone’s cell phone and smashed it preventing them from calling police, according to a release from the OPD. 

Officers reportedly took Martinez into custody and put her in the back of a patrol car.

While in the patrol vehicle, Martinez told officers that when she got out of jail she was going to kill an officer by “cutting off his head,” and kill his family, according to the release. 

Martinez also reportedly threatened to bomb the Odessa Police Department and told officers, “this is why cops get killed,” according to police. 

Martinez was arrested and charged with obstruction or retaliation, a third-degree-felony, public intoxication, a class C misdemeanor and interfering with an emergency phone call, a class A misdemeanor.
