Samantha Price, Akron inmate, brawls with 3 deputies

The irony dripping off this one is that Samantha Price was arrested for inciting violence, and once she was in lockup, what did she do? She continued to incite violence, on a considerable scale. By the time her violent tantrum had cooled, three Summit County Sheriff deputies were injured and Price had added felony assault charges to her rap sheet. Sometimes you just can’t turn if off, I guess.

Price, 19, was booked on Tuesday morning by police after she arrested on misdemeanor charges after an incident on Wilbur Avenue. According to the Akron Beacon Journal, the woman made “suicidal statements” in the jail “and was placed in restraints.” Price reportedly then went kung fu pow on three female deputies, striking the officers in the head and neck before the jail staff re-established control. The officers were treated at a local hospital. Price is still cooling her heals in the slammer as we speak.
