A woman being evicted from the Guest House on East Felton Road ended up in jail after tangling with deputies Tuesday.

Sandee Leal, 54, had been asked to leave by the facility’s owners, according to the Bartow County Sheriff’s Office report, but told the deputy she was not moving at just after 3 p.m. An agreement between Leal and the owners was reached that would give the woman until 4:30 to pack and leave.

At 4:15 p.m. the deputy returned to find Leal had not packed and would continually pack and unpack her belongings.

According to the report, Leal began tossing trash bags onto the sidewalk and became irate when the deputy placed the bags inside the room and told Leal not to throw them outside. When told to leave the room, Leal allegedly placed her finger in the deputy’s face and then made a fist in an aggressive manner.

Placing Leal under arrest, the deputy reported the woman turned on him with her fist clinched. A second deputy then stepped in to assist, but Leal lay down on the bed and began swinging her fists at the two deputies, grabbing one’s sunglasses and tossing them, and attempting to bite the reporting officer.

The second deputy, who suffered scratches, tased Leal after she was ordered to comply or be tased.

She was arrested and charged with two counts of obstruction of an officer, criminal trespass and simple assault.
