(CNN/KOMO) - Police say a half-naked woman attacked and injured three Seattle police officers over the weekend.
She was at a bar Saturday night when she began stripping off her clothes and sticking hot pink duct tape on her upper body, according to police.
The bartender ordered her to leave. She refused.
Police say the woman assaulted the bartender, and scratched the face and eyes of another woman in the bar.
When police showed up, she fled to a nearby KFC/Taco Bell restaurant and hid in the women's restroom.
She was eventually brought outside and handcuffed, but she didn't go quietly. Officers tried putting her in the patrol car, and she lashed out kicking and fighting. She did a back-flip out of the patrol car, according to police.
One officer had a tendon torn in his right pinkie finger, another officer had slight dislocation in his jaw, and another officer was kicked in the head.
The three officers and the suspect were taken to the hospital. The suspect had to be sedated and is facing assault charges.
