On June 3, 2018, at about 2:30 a.m., Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the Fourth Street entrance of the Humboldt County Courthouse for the report of a female subject causing a disturbance.

Ford was booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on the following charges: resisting arrest, assault on a peace officer, disorderly conduct under the influence of alcohol and violation of probation.



  • OMG! It never ends.

  • Blacktail Addict

    That’s a rough looking 28.

  • I’ve been hating the news lately too.

  • The Eureka 1-2lb Heroin Trafficker bust around the same time less worthy for the “crime” section than this…

  • She needs a ‘timeout’ at Starbucks.

    Lock her up and get her some help. This person is a constant problem on the Arcata Plaza. She is on some really bad drugs (seems like meth and some bad LSD). She is incredibly violent and shouldn’t be on the streets. She constantly harasses passers by who are just minding their business. I have her on video physically fighting with a baby in her arms. The baby is knocked over and she continues to fight around him, paying no attention to him or the other children around her. APD didn’t do a thing about it, even though it was clearly child endangerment documented on video. APD’s excuse was that a victim needed to file an assault charge in order to make an arrest. Um… babies can’t file for assault. They just didn’t want to deal with the paperwork. This was a direct quote from one of the officers. Way to serve and protect! She also had to be hog tied by off duty security during a show at Humbrews a few months ago for starting a fight and biting someone in the leg. At least the civilians are brave enough to handle her accordingly. I and several others also witnessed her climb on to the bathroom counter at the Benbow KOA a year ago and urinate in the sink at Summer Arts. She is disgusting. I remember her saying she was from South Dakota. She has family. They need to come claim her and throw her in an insane asylum before she kills someone. I don’t know how people can let their mentally ill family members roam around like this when it’s known that they are unstable and a threat to society. She needs to go. Praying they don’t play catch and release with her.

  • I think she just has fake news fatigue and does not want to admit it.
