According to a criminal complaint:

On Monday, an officer initiated a traffic stop of a car in the 1600 block of South Memorial Drive. The officer noticed the passenger was Hawley and believed the driver had a warrant out for his arrest. The officer approached the car and told the driver he had an active warrant for his arrest and needed to step out of the car. Hawley then removed her seatbelt and opened her door.

The driver was searched and then Hawley yelled “Baby, no!” and said to the officer “Really? Are you guys (expletive) kidding me?” She then tried to exit the car again despite being told to remain in the car. She ran to the officer which prompted the officer to unholster his taser. He raised his arm to push Hawley back. When trying to put Hawley’s right wrist behind her back, she bit his arm and caused bleeding.

A needle was found inside Hawley’s jacket and a crack pipe with a Chore Boy was found under her seat in the car.

Hawley was given a $1,000 cash bond in Racine County Circuit Court on Tuesday. A preliminary court hearing is set for April 22 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave., online court records show.
