Drunk woman assaults police

TWO Sale police officers were assaulted early Sunday morning.

A male police officer was punched in the face and a female police officer was injured when they were called to deal with problem customers at McDonald’s, Sale, at 3.40am Sunday.

Police were called to the fast food outlet by staff who claimed two women were causing disruption.

While police were attempting to talk to the intoxicated women one of them lashed out, assaulting the male officer.

As his partner attempted to arrest and restrain the 28-year-old Sale woman, she too was injured in the struggle.

The woman was arrested and taken to Sale police station where she was charged with two counts of assault, two counts of assaulting police and for being drunk and disorderly.

She will face Sale Magistrates Court at a later date.

The officers were taken to Central Gippsland Health Service, Sale, where they were treated for minor injuries and discharged.
