ODESSA - An Odessa teenager busted for underage drinking is in big trouble with the law.

Police were originally responding to a burglary call Wednesday morning in the 1700 block of north "I" Street.

That's when they stumbled upon 18-year-old Danci Demel drinking with friends.

Demel was arrested for underage drinking.

When officers got her out of the patrol car, they noticed she had slipped out of her handcuffs.

Police say she spun the handcuffs around her index finger smiling at the officer, then she struck him in the forehead with the cuffs when he tried to get them back on.

He was treated for a large gash on his head.

Demel is also charged with a first degree felony charge of aggravated assault on a public servant.

She was released after posting a $50,000 bond.
