Eagle was charged after two separate incidents this year, first in January and then again in April. Each time, she was reportedly drunk when she attempted to punch officers.
In total, she was charged with four assaults and battery against an officer.
However, she reached a plea deal with the Bannock County District Attorney’s Office. As part of this agreement, Eagle pleaded guilty to two counts and, in exchange, the other two charges were dismissed. The offenses of petty theft and providing false information to an officer were also dismissed.
As part of her probation, Eagle was ordered to attend a drug treatment program and pay $991 in costs and fines.
