A woman whose family has listed her as missing was found in the Santa Monica Jail last week. 

The family of Laura McCulloch launched a campaign to find her after she stopped returning calls last week following a date. 

However, SMPD said McCulloch was arrested on Friday after she threw a drink at a restaurant patron and their 2-year-old child. According to SMPD, McCulloch charged at the responding officers while yelling expletives.  Despite efforts to calm her, McCulloch continued to display aggressive behaviors.  During efforts to detain her, she became physically combative, kicked at officers and bit one officer on the shoulder.

McCulloch, 37 years old from Australia, was arrested, transported to the Santa Monica Jail and booked for public intoxication and resisting arrest.
