SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - The woman accused of threatening several Louisiana State University-Shreveport employees is expected to be extradited to Louisiana.

The Shreveport Times reports 36-year-old Amanda Charlene Sutherland was arrested Sunday and appeared in court Monday in King County, Washington. The newspaper cites an area station report that says Sutherland accused the court of abducting her Monday, saying "there's no evidence, no grounds for any crimes I've committed, ever." She will appear in court again on Friday.

Louisiana Troop G spokesman Glenn Younger says he's unsure when Sutherland will return to Louisiana. Sutherland is held on $500,000 bail.

Sutherland was charged in 2016 for attacking a Bossier Parish bus driver and sheriff deputy. The public defender's office for Louisiana's 26th Judicial District asked last January for a mental evaluation for Sutherland.
