Police charged a Sandusky woman with resisting arrest and assault after she kicked an officer in the chest early Wednesday morning.

Three officers attempted to arrest Heather L. Fox, 37, for disorderly conduct after she walked into a man’s house in the 300 block of Fulton Street and started bothering his dogs, according police.

The officers noted she had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech, and she smelled of alcohol. As they attempted to handcuff her, she shouted profanities and started kicking the officers.

She struck Officer Major Ruffin in the chest and he grabbed her foot to restrain her, police said. Police warned her to stop, but she continued her aggressive behavior.

She finally stopped when officers released pepper spray into her face.
