Troopers: Drunk driver tried biting officers after kicking them during processing

State police arrested a woman on felony DWI and other charges following a traffic stop on 5&20 in the town of Seneca.

The operator, identified as Elissa Plaza-Pierce, was taken into custody after the traffic stop- and after failing field sobriety tests.


During processing Plaza-Pierce became combative with troopers and attempted to slip out of handcuffs. She then kicked and attempted to bite troopers.

She was ultimately charged with felony DWI, as well as harassment and obstruction.

The charges will be answered at a later date.
