Woman arrested for assaulting an officer

Responding officer assaulted by female suspect.  On 10/20/13, just shortly after 3:00 a.m., officers were dispatched to a Hotel in the 1000 block of 1st Ave S to assist in removing a group of unruly unwanted guests.  During the incident, it was decided that two members of the group would be allowed to go back to their room to gather their property.

This upset the female suspect, who when she was told she couldn’t go, got into the face of one of the responding officers.  The officer responded by moving her back with a gentle push.  The suspect responded by punching the officer in the mouth, causing slight swelling to the left side of her upper lip.

The suspect was quickly taken into custody. The 29-year-old female suspect was booked into King County Jail for Investigation of Assault
