Woman charged with resisting arrest on scene and at jail

WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — A Wichita Falls woman has been charged with resisting arrest after police said she was causing a disturbance both in a squad car and in jail.

Krysten Duval is now free on bond.

According to Wichita Falls Police, on Saturday, March 23, around 12:45 p.m., a disturbance was reported in the 2900 block of Garnett Avenue between a man and woman.

They said an officer saw a Ford Expedition with the trunk open, following a man into a parking lot.

The man said he was Duval's husband, and she had become angry at him because she believed he had her phone in his fanny pack. She allegedly slapped his phone out of his hand and hit him in the chest.

Police detained Duval, placed her in the back of the patrol car and said she began trying to kick a window out. She was ordered to stop but the officer said she kept kicking it, so he pinned her to the seat with his body to stop her.

When they arrived at the jail, the officer said Duval refused to follow orders, pushed a call button and asked for a "superior officer." She then reportedly kept trying to walk around, so she was pinned against the door.

Once in the main booking area, the officer said she continued to pull away, and as the officer tried to force her into a "combative cell," she fell to the floor and complained of knee pain.

Duval was arrested in 2022 on charges of trying to take an officer's weapon and resisting arrest. Those two charges were eventually dismissed.
