A woman who said she wanted to go to jail instead of the city's detox center got her wish when she punched an officer in the face, Oklahoma City police said.

Ashley Lauren Evans, 18, a transient, was arrested Sunday on complaints of assault and battery on a public official and public drunkenness, according to a police report released Tuesday.

Officer Wilner Laguerre, 40, picked up Evans from Integris Baptist Hospital, 3300 Northwest Expressway, where she was found to be intoxicated on methamphetamines, according to the report.

Laguerre was taking Evans to the Public Inebriate Alternative, 1940 Linwood Blvd., when Evans said she wanted to go jail. When Laguerre told her no, Evans punched him in the face, according to the report.

Evans was taken to the Oklahoma County jail and was released Monday.
