MPD patrol car

A Maricopa woman is accused of stabbing a man and assaulting a police officer in a Dec. 3 incident.

Colleen M. Bias is charged with aggravated assault, disorderly conduct and aggravated assault on police, according to a probable cause statement.

Police said they were called to a home on West Good Vibrations Lane in Province about 9:30 p.m. by a man who reported he had been stabbed with a knife and was bleeding all over the home.

When officers arrived at the home, Bias was found sitting on the kitchen floor. She was visibly intoxicated and slurred her words, while yelling profanities at officers, the probable cause statement said. A paring knife was found on the floor, according to police.

She was handcuffed and evaluated by Maricopa Fire Department medical personnel, who also assessed the man’s condition, police said. He had a cut on his right arm and received treatment.

The man told officers he and Bias had been drinking when an argument started. Police said they knew both parties from previous visits to the home for domestic violence incidents.

Bias alleged the man abused her and had a knife, and allegedly told police she took the knife away from him and stabbed him. She was unable to explain how the man abused her and demanded her lawyer, police said.

Placed in the back of a patrol car, Bias allegedly told an officer if she had a knife she would kill him, police said.

Taken to the MPD station for processing, Bias allegedly used racial slurs several times against a sergeant, police said. She was taken to a restroom before the trip to Pinal County Jail. As she came out of the restroom the same sergeant provided hand sanitizer to Bias in her hands, which she allegedly threw in his face, police said. Aggravated assault of a police officer was added to her charges.

Bias was booked into Pinal County Jail.

If convicted of class 3 aggravated assault, Bias could serve a prison term of up to 15 years, according to state statute.
