BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The woman who spit on a police officer's hamburger will spend 45 days in jail after agreeing to a plea deal.

On Wednesday Tatyana Hargrove pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of assaulting an officer. She agreed to 45 days in jail, will perform 100 hours of community service and receive mental health counseling.

In 2017, Hargrove claimed she was the victim of police brutality when she was arrested after a struggle with Bakersfield police. She was arrested on charges of resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer and interfering with a police dog.

The district attorney's office later decided not to prosecute her for that incident.
