Should have listened to Mr. Miyagi: "Fighting always last answer to problem."

A South Carolina woman slapped and tried to bite cops on Tuesday, CBS Charlotte reported.

Tracey McSwain Smith, 40, allegedly told an officer she was the "Karate Kid" before assaulting her.

Deputies say Smith's sister called authorities to get medical attention for her after Smith allegedly used methamphetamine and huffed gasoline. When they asked for her name, Smith reportedly held up her arms and one leg, claiming to be Mr. Myagi's protegée.

The Associated Press reports that Smith then slapped a deputy, breaking her sunglasses, and then tried to bite another officer. The deputies shocked her with a Taser twice before she was taken down and arrested.

Smith allegedly admitted that she'd used meth. She was held on charges including assault and battery.
