EVERETT, Wash. — A young woman who was shot by Arlington police after she drew a knife has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault, but won’t spend time in jail under an agreement.

The Daily Herald reports the woman was accused of assaulting her boyfriend and officers before the 2017 shooting.

The Everett paper has declined to identify her because she was a minor at the time.

Officers found the woman lying on a street and yelling. Witnesses heard her talking about wanting to die.

Officers say they told the woman to get off the street, which she did. They say the woman later locked herself in her car and held a knife to her neck.

The woman reportedly lunged at a sergeant after her window was shattered.

Her lawyer Pete Mazzone says she was shot five times.
