A search warrant made public Thursday shows Raleigh police had quite a time with a woman arrested on suspicion of DWI.

According to the warrant, officers responded to an accident call on Keeter Center Drive around 7:30 Wednesday evening. A 2003 Ford Taurus hit a power pole.

Police say they suspected 27-year-old Camisha Donnette Sanders was the driver and found the keys to the vehicle in her purse. Sanders was put in handcuffs and placed in the back of a squad car.

When the owner of the car arrived and told officers she didn't know how Sanders got her keys, the warrant says Sanders became belligerent, slipped out of the handcuffs, and began hitting and kicking the window of the car.

The warrant says it took three officers to restrain her.

When Sanders was taken to jail, the warrant says it took two female detention officers and a nurse to get a blood sample.

Sander was charged with DWI, driving with a revoked license, and hit and run.
