Nicole Ulate was charged with injury to the elderly, a first-degree felony, and resisting arrest search or transport, a class A misdemeanor.
The reported assault happened at 5:52 p.m. Wednesday in the 2600 block of San Carlos Terrace, an Odessa Police Department affidavit detailed.
Individuals, identified as Martha Arevalo and Rigo Ulate, stated Nicole Ulate threatened to harm or kill them while engaged in a verbal dispute, the affidavit stated. Arevalo stated Nicole Ulate intentionally bit her left hand while she was sitting outside in her lawn chair about an hour prior to officers arriving.
Arevalo reportedly stated she wouldn’t likely be able to defend herself against Ulate. Officers saw Arevalo’s left hand I could see bruising and what appeared to be teeth marks.
Ulate reportedly yelled and screamed when officers approached her. Officers attempted to calm Ulate down, but were unsuccessful. Ulate reportedly stepped toward officers in an aggressive manner while screaming. She was detained in handcuffs.
Ulate was arrested, charged and transported to Ector County Law Enforcement Center. She has two bonds totaling $51,000 and was still in custody as of Thursday afternoon, jail records show.
