A 31-year-old Deer Lake woman charged with kicking out a side window of an RCMP vehicle, assaulting an officer and other offences, will be in provincial court in Corner Brook Aug. 6.
The charges came after RCMP officers from the Deer Lake detachment responded to a physical altercation between to women at a residence on Nicholsville Road in the west coast town about 8 p.m. Friday.
As a result the accused, allegedly intoxicated at the time, was arrested for assault and damage to property.
After being and placed in the back of the police car, the accused became “very irate” and began kicking the interior door frame of the police car and smashed out the rear, side window.
RCMP officers had to use pepper spray to help gain control of the woman. When the officers attempted to place the woman in cells at the Deer lake detachment, she continued with the irate behaviour assaulting two police officers before she was secured in the cells.
One officer sustained a minor injury during the incident, but did not require medical aid.
The accused was held overnight and released from custody on Saturday with several court-imposed conditions.
