SFO dustup leads to charges
January 04, 2011, 03:15 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

The former Los Angeles city attorney arrested for attacking officers with a metal dustpan pole at San Francisco International Airport on Christmas Eve was charged yesterday with four misdemeanors.

Angela Kay West, 50, appeared in San Mateo County Superior Court Monday but declined a court-appointed attorney. She asked to represent herself and was ordered back this afternoon to give her time to read a multi-page form about the choice. West was the deputy city attorney for Los Angeles in 2002.

West was arrested just before 8 a.m. Dec. 24 in the terminal three food court near Peet’s Coffee after allegedly pulling a 3-foot metal pole from a custodian’s dustpan and swinging it at responding officers. West also threw metal milk containers, flailed and kicked one officer in the groin, said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

She also shouted that she was a lesbian and that the officers could not have sex with her, Wagstaffe said.

After being arrested, West was taken to Mills Hospital for a mental hold. After being discharged, she was booked into the county jail and yesterday charged with misdemeanor counts of assault with a deadly weapon, brandishing a deadly weapon, battery on a peace officer and vandalism.

She is being held on $25,000 bail.
