Woman charged with assault police

Deniliquin Police charged a woman with four offences on Thursday, including assault police.

January 9, 2013 4:10am

A 41 year-old Deniliquin woman allegedly slapped and kicked police after avoiding a breath test and leading police on a car chase.

Police said officers conducting random breath tests on Davidson St at 7.25pm Thursday indicated to the driver that she should pull over.

She allegedly drove around the officers and continued heading north.

The woman reportedly stopped a short distance away as police gave chase, before driving off again and eventually pulling into a Finley Rd driveway.

Police followed the woman and allegedly found that she had her six year-old child unrestrained in the back seat.

They attempted to arrest the woman for failing to stop, but she allegedly slapped an officer in the chest, tried to run away, kicked an officer in the knee and struggled while being handcuffed.

She was charged with assault police, driving under the influence of alcohol, resist police and failing to stop for a breath test.

She was released on bail and will appear in Deniliquin Local Court on February 19.
