WOOD COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Deputies say they found an East Texas woman yelling and cursing in Lake Hawkins.

They were called to the scene by someone who said the suspect, Yvonne Bizzell Budny, had been drinking and was "extremely intoxicated." Deputies were concerned for Budny's safety and asked her to get out of the water, but she refused and began cursing and using obscenities. Deputies had to get in the water and bring her to shore. They say although Budny resisted the entire time, they were able to handcuff her and bring her to safety.

In addition to cursing at deputies and using obsenities, authorities say Budny spit on them. Yvonne Bizzell Budny was arrested for Assault on a Public Servant.
