Woman Claims to be Karate Kid, Slaps Cop
Authorities say a Chesnee woman who tried to bite a deputy during her arrest said she was the “Karate Kid” before assaulting the officer.
Jail records show 40-year-old Tracey McSwain Smith was being held Tuesday on charges including third-degree assault and battery.
Deputies say Smith’s sister called authorities Sunday to get medical attention for her. When authorities asked Smith for her name, deputies say she held up her arms and one leg and said she was the “Karate Kid.” Deputies say Smith slapped a deputy, breaking her sunglasses, and tried to bite an officer on the arm.
Authorities say they shocked Smith with a Taser twice before she was handcuffed.
