A Kentucky woman is facing multiple charges after she allegedly tried to crawl out of the window of a cop car after hitting the officer with a bat, according to authorities.

On July 17, deputies went to a home in Miracle to serve warrants on the suspect, 47-year-old Darlene Wilder, according to the Bell County Sheriff’s Department.

Once at the residence, Wilder’s boyfriend told police she was inside the home and gave them permission to enter, officials said.

Officers announced their presence before going into the home, which is when Wilder allegedly took off running through the house.

Deputies then tried to handcuff her during the arrest and she allegedly tried to assault them.

They eventually placed her in the cruiser outside and one of the officers was talking to her boyfriend about the damages Wilder allegedly caused in the house when she crawled out the window while still handcuffed and tried to escape again, authorities said.

Wilder reportedly swung a bat at one of the officers before she tried hiding in a bedroom, according to police.

Officers said they tried to get Wilder to put the bat down, but she refused and they ended up tasing her.
