COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Spitting on a deputy got a woman in Columbus County in trouble.

Valerie Smith will now spend 45 days in jail and three years on probation.

According to prosecutors, Smith would not cooperate with authorities during a larceny call involving her son back in December 2011. 

They say Smith threw a bucket of pecans and spit on a deputy.

Back in 2000, Smith was charged with assault on a government official.
