A Glens Falls woman was jailed in Delaware County on Monday after she allegedly attacked a state trooper who was arresting her for using someone else's name when she was ticketed for speeding there last month, police said.

Jamie M. Varieur, 39, was charged with attempted assault of a police officer, a felony, and numerous lesser charges after two encounters with State Police in Otsego and Delaware counties in recent months, officials said.

State Police described the incidents as followed:

Troopers issued a traffic ticket for speeding to a woman on Interstate 88 in the town of Sidney in November 2018, but months later police determined that the person gave someone else's name when pulled over.

They determined Varieur was the person who was actually stopped, and contacted her to let her know she would face misdemeanor criminal impersonation and obstructing governmental administration charges, and she arranged to surrender herself to troopers in Oneonta on Monday.

During that arrest, though, Varieur became upset about what was transpiring and began to hit the trooper who was transporting her for arraignment, kicking the patrol car windows and forcing troopers to use pepper spray to get her under control.

Varieur was later arraigned in Sidney Village Court and sent to Delaware County Jail.
