An Oneida woman has pleaded guilty to DUI and assault, after attacking officers after she was arrested.

According to Corporal Gerry Garrett with the Oneida Police Department, Lisa M. Bell, 38, was arrested Tuesday evening after a minor traffic accident late in Helenwood. 

During the investigation, officers determined that Bell had borroed the pick-up truck that was involved in the wreck, which caused some property damage.  After speaking to the truck's owner at their home, Garrett saw Bell approaching in the vehicle.  He says she was driving on the wrong side of the road, and  he had to swerve to avoid being hit.  He also said there was a unrestrained child in the back seat and a woman sleeping in the passenger seat.

Garrett stopped the vehicle, and said Bell was unsteady and smelled like alchohol.  She admitted she had drank 20 beers and had snorted Oxycodone.  She failed a field sobriety test, and was taken to Oneida City Hall to be processed. 

At City Hall, Garrett said Bell became violent, cursing and fighting with officers.  She reportedly kicked one officer in the groin, and hit two others in the stomach.  They said she tried to turn over a desk and damaged a telephone.  She was eventually restrained and transported to the Scott County Justice Center.

Police also charged Bell's mother with DUI for allowing an unlicensed driver to operate a motor vehicle.

Bell pleaded guilty Wednesday to DUI, 2 counts of assault, vandalism, and an older charge for domestic assualt against her mother.  She will serve 60 days behind bars.
