By Paul Johnson

Boise, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) - A woman described by a witness of being “very intoxicated, angry and aggressive” was arrested by Boise police Tuesday night after she allegedly stabbed an employee of the hotel she was staying at, with a Ball point pen. The incident happened in the 1100 block of North Curtis Road about 7pm last night police say. Nanette M. Gazlay 54 of Boise was reportedly told to leave the establishment earlier in the day because of her disruptive behavior. The victim told police the woman attempted to hit him with her fist right before she stabbed him with a pen. The woman left the scene on foot. Soon after, police discovered the suspect had two outstanding warrants for her arrest on failure to appear charges.
As officers began the search for the suspect they received a report of a disturbance at a medical emergency room on the 1000 block of North Curtis Road. Officers who responded to that call identified the suspect as the individual involved in the incident at the hotel. Due to the suspect's level of intoxication, medical personnel had to clear her before she could be booked into jail. As the suspect was being taken into custody at the hospital she kicked an officer resulting in the additional charge.
Gazlay was charged with Aggravated Battery, Assult and Battery on a Law Officer in addition to her failure to appear charges. She is currently being held in the Ada County Jail.
