I hope the officer who was bitten can recover quickly from the bite. Definitely not the kind of interaction an officer is expecting, but it just goes to show you the variety of dangers an officer of the law can face in the line of duty.
As for Michelle Smith, well she is going to have some explaining to do once authorities are able to track her down.
