Bail $25,637 for woman who fought deputies

Bail was $25,637 for a 33-year-old Indian Hills woman who reportedly battered deputies who took her into custody after finding her intoxicated on a downtown Gardnerville sidewalk shortly before midnight Tuesday.

Cara Nicole Feletar is facing charges of assault on a peace officer and resisting and obstructing an officer.

A deputy saw Feletar lying on the sidewalk in front of the East Fork Hotel with her shoes off.

While deputies were talking with the suspect, her mother drove up, but Feletar yelled at her mother to go home.

As deputies attempted to calm Feletar, she pushed an officer in the chest with both hands and yelled obscenities. She started waving her hands in a slapping motion and continued to yell.

She knocked the deputy’s glasses off and scratched his left eyelid.

Feletar was forced to the ground, handcuffed and placed in custody. Deputies said she intentionally dropped to her knees and forced officers to carry her to the patrol unit.

Once inside the vehicle, she continued to resist, kicking the officer in the legs and trying to kick out the acrylic glass and window cage.

A preliminary breath test determined her alcohol content at .250, more than three times the legal limit for driving.

While Feletar was being booked, she spit at deputies and continued yelling obscenities.

She is set for arraignment Friday in East Fork Justice Court.
