— A Rock Hill woman remains in the York County jail under a $1,202.50 bond after her arrest Thursday on charges of allegedly assaulting two deputies and public disorderly conduct, according to police reports and jail records.

Further, the woman, Sondra Denise Funderburke, 48, had just been sentenced to time served for DUI three days before her latest arrest, according to records with the South Carolina courts index.

Deputies with the York County Sheriff’s Office responded to a home on White Horse Road Thursday morning just before 2 a.m. for a reported dispute among family members, according to the police report from the incident. A woman said her mother, Funderburke, was intoxicated after getting her boyfriend’s vodka, and her mother has a permanent brain injury from a beating years ago.

Deputies could hear profanities inside the home and could hear “multiple slaps/smacks” on bare skin, so went inside, the report states. The daughter’s boyfriend acknowledged Funderburke had hit him but neither he nor the daughter wanted to press charges, according to deputies.

However, Funderburke continued “screaming obscene and profane language,” deputies said, and refused to stop after being advised several times that refusal would mean arrest for public disorderly conduct.

While waiting for EMTs to arrive Funderburke repeatedly kicked a deputy in the legs, in the chin, and threatened him, the report states.

Funderburke cursed EMTs and said she didn’t have to go to jail, the report states, then she kicked a second deputy trying to put her in a patrol car. She was so uncooperative that several jail officers had to assist deputies in getting Funderburke out of the car after she was taken to jail.
