A woman who caused a disturbance and threatened to infect Superior police officers by spitting at them will spend 15 months on probation and 60 days in jail.
Michelle Lynn Husemoller, 44, of Superior pleaded guilty in Douglas County Circuit Court earlier this month to resisting an officer, battery-domestic abuse and misdemeanor bail jumping stemming from two incidents this spring.
Other conditions of probation include undergoing chemical dependency and domestic abuse evaluations and following recommendations, possessing no alcohol or controlled substances without a valid prescription, submitting to random urinalysis and paying $343 in court costs. Charges of disorderly conduct-domestic abuse and throwing or discharging bodily fluids at a public safety worker were dismissed.
As added incentive, Judge Kelly Thimm left an eight-month jail sentence hanging over Husemoller’s head. The imposed and stayed sentence would kick in automatically if she fails to follow the terms of her probation.
Superior police were called to Husemoller’s apartment in March on a report that she slapped her boyfriend and threatened to kill his dog. When they responded, Husemoller appeared very drunk. She yelled that she had multiple diseases and threatened to infect the officers by spitting at them. The Superior woman hid in her bedroom and threatened to spit at the officer who attempted to enter.
A month later, police were called back to Husemoller’s residence for another domestic incident in which she had been drinking and punched her boyfriend. Bond conditions from the original altercation included no alcohol and no violent or abusive contact with her boyfriend.
