Woman arrested for allegedly assaulting Minot officer and trying to flee while handcuffed


MINOT, North Dakota — Formal charges are pending against a woman accused of assaulting a Minot police officer over the weekend.

Authorities say officers responded to a hotel early Saturday to help the manager evict three disorderly people staying in one of the rooms. Police say the 24-year-old woman refused to get out of bed, then struck an officer on the side of the head with her hand and tried to flee after being handcuffed.

She was arrested on charges of simple assault on a peace officer, fleeing and possessing drug paraphernalia.

Two men in the room also were arrested on various charges.
