A Peterborough woman is accused of assaulting a police officer during an arrest for public intoxication on Thursday night.

Peterborough Police Service says around 11:20 p.m., officers responded to reports of an alleged intoxicated woman who had fled a residence into a heavily forested area.

Police eventually found the woman and placed her under arrest under the Liquor Licence Act for public intoxication.

However, during the arrest, the woman allegedly assaulted an officer twice.

She was released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court in Peterborough on Sept. 18.
