The Laurel County Sheriff’s Office says a woman is behind bars after she assaulted and spit on deputies. Deputies and social services responded to a child custody complaint at a home off Philpot Road south of London. After an investigation, social services placed custody of the children with their biological father. The children’s mother, 31 year old Rebecca J. Fultz of Livingston, was outside the home and began yelling and cursing. When deputies tried to arrest Fultz, she scuffled with them. While putting her in the police cruiser, Fultz spit on the deputies. Fultz was charged with disorderly conduct, assaulting a police officer, and resisting arrest. She also had several outstanding charges on a Rockcastle County bench warrant. Fultz was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
