Some people hate hospitals. And then there are people who really, really hate hospitals.

A 28-year-old Bryan woman is apparently one of the latter. She threw a fit at St. Joseph's Hospital after she was taken there following her arrest on suspicion of DWI.

The woman was pulled over shortly after 11 p.m. last Wednesday because, police say, she did not have her headlights on. The woman driving the vehicle told officers she had just left The Proudest Monkey, smelled strongly of alcohol and had red and watery eyes, officers said. After the woman was arrested, police talked to the bartender at Proudest Monkey (who was also the woman's roommate) and learned that the woman had promised the bartender she'd get a ride home.

The woman was asked to take field sobriety tests and she had difficulty following directions and could not pass any of them, the arrest report indicates.

The woman was taken to a hospital so blood could be drawn for a more thorough test, but she refused to let he blood be taken. She reportedly kicked at and fought with officers and hospital staff before officer used "pressure point techniques" to subdue her.

The woman is now facing a third-degree felony charge of DWI because she has two prior convictions. If she is convicted, she could be forced to pay up to $10,000 and spend a decade in prison.
