JANESVILLE—A Janesville woman has been sentenced to five years of probation for a drug-fueled fight with officers in the town of Beloit the night of Aug. 21, 2016.

Amber J. Tracy, 31, of 1520 Alden Road, pleaded guilty to possession of heroin and expelling bodily fluids at a public safety worker.

Dismissed were charges of possession of cocaine, resisting an officer, possession of Suboxone, possession of an illegally obtained prescription drug, disorderly conduct and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Tracy had two young children in the car when she drove about 60 mph and hit her brakes about 100 yards in front of an accident scene, stopping within about 2 feet of a squad car.

She later admitted she had taken heroin and cocaine, according to the criminal complaint.

A deputy found her to be disoriented and frantic and found she had a suspended driver's license and an active arrest warrant, according to the complaint.

She tried to walk away. The deputy tried to stop her, she resisted, shouted vulgarities and resisted “with great force,” according to the complaint.

Deputies could not handcuff her, and they eventually used pepper spray on her, according to the complaint.

Deputies reported finding crack cocaine and a pipe on her person.

As a deputy was placing her in the squad car, she launched a large amount of spittle into his face and shouted more vulgarities, according to the complaint.

Deputies then put Tracy in a spit hood and leg shackles.

The sentence also covers an incident on Sept. 9, 2016, in which she pleaded guilty to possession of Suboxone and bail jumping.
