A woman who was already wanted in Fredericksburg picked up more felony charges late Tuesday after she spit on a Stafford County deputy twice and tried to kick another deputy, police said.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Amanda Vicinanzo said deputies went to the Motel 6 at 401 Warrenton Road in southern Stafford about 11:12 p.m. in response to a reported disturbance. Several witnesses reported seeing a woman slap a man during a heated argument in front of one of the motel rooms.

Deputies found the combatants in a motel room with the door open. The room was in disarray and motel staff requested that the pair be removed from the property.

The woman, later identified as Leslie Camp, was intoxicated and gave police a false first name, Vicinanzo said. She admitted slapping the man, but the man declined to press charges.

Camp was taken into custody for a misdemeanor public intoxication charge, and marijuana was found in her jacket, police said.

When she was handcuffed, Vicinanzo said, Camp became very argumentative and started using racial slurs. She tried to escape from Deputy W.C. Betush before pulling her pants down. She complied with the deputy’s command to pull her pants back up, but she continued to resist.

Once in the back of a cruiser, Vicinanzo said, she spit on Betush twice and tried to kick Sgt. Jason Aubry.

Camp, 41, of Fredericksburg was also charged with assault on a law-enforcement officer, attempted assault on a law-enforcement officer, providing false identification, possession of marijuana, obstruction of justice and indecent exposure.

She was also served five warrants for probation violations in Fredericksburg, where court records show she had been wanted since Oct. 25.
