Most Infamous Moment: Farmer's studio hairdresser filed an assault charge claiming Farmer dislocated her jaw.

At the same time of her hairdresser's assault charge, police were after Farmer for an unpaid fine for driving drunk with her lights on in a War Zone. From the moment they entered her room to take her into custody, she started fighting. She threw an inkwell at a judge who then sentenced her to 180 days, to which she responded by knocking down a policeman, bruising another, and was promptly carried away.

After receiving unwanted shock therapy and assaulting her mother, she lived with a family that picked her up hitchhiking. After being arrested for vagrancy, she spent five years in a psych ward.
