Police reported Ageuclid Leon-Sanchez, 21, was at the Greyhound bus station at 709 Fifth Avenue South when Greyhound security asked her to leave.

Leon-Sanchez refused and security officers called Metro police asking her to be removed from the property, according to an affidavit.

When officers processed her identification, they found she was a wanted fugitive from Arizona.

As police attempted to arrest her, Leon-Sanchez reportedly slipped out of her handcuffs and kicked an officer in the chest during a struggle.

Police were eventually able to take her into custody.

Leon-Sanchez was booked into the Metro jail, charged with assaulting an officer and is awaiting extradition to Arizona. Her bond is set at $355,000.

In February of this year, Leon-Sanchez was arrested in Arizona while driving a vehicle reported stolen out of Texas.

The Chino Valley Police Department told News 2 she was arrested and booked into jail on unlawful use of a means of transportation, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Leon-Sanchez has since pled guilty and was sentence to 8 days in jail with 3 years of probation.
