(Newser) – An Ohio teen expelled from her prom for being drunk and belligerent was spitting mad—spitting blood, that is, from a self-inflicted nosebleed. Jessica Halter, 18, is facing a litany of charges after refusing to take a Breathalyzer test and screaming at school administrators, "You are fucking bitches this is my prom, I'm not drunk," according to the police report obtained by the Smoking Gun.

When cops attempted to walk her out of the function hall, Halter went limp. Before she could be bundled into a police car, she "cleared her throat and spit a bloody ball of spit" at a responding officer. "She was spitting cussing kicking the whole way," another officer told Fox 8 News of Cleveland.
