One woman is facing multiple charges after police say she punched an officer and spit at the officer last week. 

The investigation began on Feb. 19 when Odessa Police were called to the 1900 block of 8th Street about a person walking in the roadway. 

While speaking with the woman, later identified as Dora Hampton, police say she did not comply with commands and evaded officers. 

When officers tried to handcuff Hampton, she reportedly punched an officer in the chin and shoulder. 

She is then accused of spitting on the same officer, according to a release. 

Hampton has since been charged with assault on a public servant, harassment of a public servant, evading arrest and resisting arrest.
