A San Francisco woman was arrested by Davis police after she was accused of brandishing a knife at an Amtrak conductor.
About 12:35 p.m. Tuesday, officers were called to the Amtrak station, where they detained the woman, identified as Monyea Monique Johnson, 27.
During their investigation, officers determined that she had been asked to exit the train at the Davis station because she had not paid for a ticket. Johnson reportedly became agitated and spit on the conductor. She also allegedly pointed a knife at and threatened the conductor. The woman put the knife away before police arrived.
The conductor was not injured.
Johnson was taken into custody without incident, but as she was being transported to Yolo County Jail, she allegedly spit on the arresting officer.
She was booked on suspicion of making criminal threats, brandishing a deadly weapon, battery on a peace officer and battery.
