Port Orchard woman assaults two Bremerton police officers

Two Bremerton police officers were assaulted Saturday by a Port Orchard woman high on methamphetamine and resisting arrest.

Police arrived at a house in the 2400 block of 11th Street at 6:24 p.m. to investigate a 911 hang-up call. A 40-year-old man at the house told police that a 26-year-old Poulsbo man and a 25-year-old woman came to the house and the woman acted strangely, taking her clothes off and refusing to leave the house. The woman was uncooperative with police and repeatedly asked for her purse, which contained three syringes.

The Poulsbo man told police the woman was high on meth when he picked her up earlier in the day and brought her to the house.

When the officers tried to arrest the woman for possession of drug paraphernalia and criminal trespassing, she bit a 23-year-old officer and kicked a 36-year-old officer in the stomach. Police sprayed pepper spray at the woman to subdue her and she was transported to Harrison Medical Center. She was booked into Kitsap County jail for investigation of two counts of third-degree assault, one count of drug paraphernalia possession and one count of providing false statements to law enforcement. A report of resisting arrest and criminal trespassing was forwarded to prosecutors.
