A woman being booked at a Ventura County Jail facility for vandalism, and being under the influence of drugs is now facing an even more serious charge, after authorities say she attacked a deputy.

Jail officials say Natalie Cota of Oxnard was going through the booking process Sunday when she attacked a female deputy, punching her in the neck.

Deputies restrained, and cuffed the 25 year old woman, who is now also facing a battery on a peace officer charge.

The deputy wasn’t seriously injured.
