Woman unruly on way to jail

NORCROSS -- Police arrested a 51-year-old Norcross woman on charges she threatened to kill an officer and offered sexual favors in exchange for her release, police said.

Elizabeth Katie Rauh faces felony charges of bribery, terroristic threats and acts and obstruction of law enforcement, along with a misdemeanor count of public drunkenness stemming from the Friday evening encounter.

A Norcross police officer responded to the Intown Suites at 6067 Buford Highway to a call for medical assistance about 7 p.m. and found Rauh in her car, surrounded by empty containers of booze, police said.

Address records show Rauh had been living at the extended stay hotel, said Norcross police spokesman Capt. Brian Harr.

Rauh refused medical treatment and threw a cup of beer at the officer, hitting his leg, police said.

En route to the Gwinnett County Jail, Rauh offered oral sex in exchange for her release, according to her arrest warrant.

"Of course, the officer didn't stop, and she proceeded to threaten to kill him," Harr said.

Rauh was released to deputies at the jail. The officer avoided injury, Harr said.

Rauh remained jailed Monday on $18,400 bond. A probable cause hearing is scheduled for Friday afternoon.
