32-year-old tourist Candace Long was jailed on April 9th after kicking a police officer in the face. Officers working the Entertainment District Unit saw Candace fall down and hit her head in front of Kid Rocks Hoky Tonk. She was heavily intoxicated, unable to stand independently, and could not form a coherent sentence. When she was in the back of the medic UTV, she became combative. Officers tried to calm her down and explain what was happening when she kicked an officer in the face. She then began swinging wildly and punched an officer in the face causing an injury. Officers were eventually able to restrain Candance and place her in custody.
