Intoxicated woman bites Barrie cop

A Barrie police officer ended up with a “significant bruise” on his arm after being bitten by an intoxicated woman being treated at the RVH, police report.
The incident began around 3 a.m. Thursday when police received a call about a woman walking in the Anne Street South lane. Police responded and upon locating the woman, discovered minor injuries which, she said, were the result of an earlier altercation with a friend.
Police say the woman did not appear sober, and it was discovered she was under a probation order not to consume alcohol. She was charged with breaking her conditions and taken into custody.
The woman was taken to the hospital for treatment, and once there “became aggressive and very uncooperative with nursing staff,” say police. The officer was bitten as he attempted to help nurses treat the women, police say.
The woman, 26, was further charged with assaulting the officer, and was due to appear in bail court today.
