WAUKESHA — Kalin Sunde, the woman who stabbed a K9 officer with the underwire of her bra after an hours-long standoff, has been sentenced to five years in prison with six years supervision.

The 31-year-old was a passenger in a stolen van that was involved in a miles-long chase that started in the Kettle Moraine State Forest. Police saw the driver point a gun out the window, which led to deputies firing at the car, stopping it on State Highway 67 and I-94 and a standoff that lasted for hours.

Sunde used Facebook Live to stream the standoff. She claimed she was a hostage in the car but was an active participant in the incident, according to court documents.

Months later, authorities said she removed a GPS monitoring device after posting bail and a bench warrant was issued.

She was charged with six counts including two felony charges of bail jumping connected to the standoff and a separate case of resisting an officer at the hospital.
