RIVERVIEW, Fla. (AP) — A Hillsborough County woman who threatened deputies who had gone to her home to check on her remains in jail on charges of assaulting a law enforcement officer.
Jail records show 50-year-old Tracy Lynn Hawley was arrested early Sunday. Bond is set at $26,500. The charges include aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, battery on a law enforcement officer and obstructing or opposing an officer with violence.
