GLASSBORO - A drunken driver bit and scratched two officers during her arrest, police said.
Brittany Ledden, 24, was charged Monday night with two counts of aggravated assault on police, disorderly conduct, resisting, obstruction and criminal mischief. The Williamstown resident also was cited for drunken, careless, and reckless driving, following too closely and failing to maintain lane.
Police said an officer was processing Ledden on the drunken driving charge and planned to release the woman to a family member but she "refused to cooperate and became unruly, hostile and out of control."
Another officer was helping the first officer get control of the suspect when she bit and scratched them, police said. Both officers were treated at Kennedy Memorial Hospital for injuries to their hands.
Ledden was also evaluated and treated at Kennedy, police said, and then taken to Salem County Jail.
