Chatham woman throws feces at police during arrest, police say
A Chatham woman faces five criminal charges after a wild series of events, which includes allegedly throwing her own feces at a police officer.
Police say the woman kicked the front door of a home on Victoria Avenue at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Then, the 28-year-old allegedly tried to flee on foot but was arrested.
Once at police headquarters, police say she bit the hand of an officer before allegedly defecating in a cell and throwing her own feces at officers.
"It's not uncommon for people to resist arrest. However, biting an officer and then throwing your own feces at an officer while in the cell area is definitely uncommon, thankfully," Chatham-Kent police Const. Renee Cowell said. "However, it's part of the hazard of the job that we do."
Police allege the same woman assaulted a man at the same address earlier in the morning.
She is charged with assault causing bodily harm, resisting arrest, assaulting a peace officer and two counts of mischief.
