Brookfield Woman Spits at Police Officers in Bizarre Encounter, Police Say

Barbara E. Hummer, 53, of Brookfield was yelling about the FBI, incest and rape when she was taken into custody, according to a criminal complaint.

A 53-year-old Brookfield woman is accused of spitting in a Brookfield police officer's face as she was being taken into custody for possessing marijuana, according to a criminal complaint.

Barbara E. Hummer was charged Wednesday in Waukesha County Circuit Court with discharging bodily fluid at a public safety worker, obstructing an officer and possessing marijuana. She faces up to a 1.5 years in prison if convicted of the felony, plus possible jail time for the misdemeanor charges.

According to the criminal complaint:

Brookfield police were asked to remove Hummer from a residence because she was intoxicated Jan. 2. The woman who wanted Hummer removed said Hummer was going off on tangents and wasn’t making any sense.

Police conducted a breath test on Hummer and determined she had a .216 percent blood alcohol concentration. They offered to take her to the police station where she could have a sober person take her home. However, when they started to pat her down before they left the area, she said, “There’s my weed, another $600 ticket.”

Hummer became combative, flailing her arms to avoid being handcuffed, according to the complaint. After she was in custody, she started yelling about incest, working for the FBI, pimps and rape.

Hummer started yelling derogatory names at a female officer and spit in the woman’s face. As officers put her in the squad car, she spat at another officer, missing the officer’s face and hitting the officer’s leg.
