The charges stem from an investigation in the early morning hours the same day when a St. Clair County deputy responded to a call of a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot at Shelby’s, Lowry City.
When deputies made contac with Ms. Bennink and she became belligerent and knocked a flashlight out the deputy’s hand.
She made a fist and swung it in an attempt to assault the deputy. During the incident Bennink assaulted the deputy several times and refused directives given from the deputy.
Pepper spray and a taser were both used to subdue Bennink.
