Norwalk police arrested a Huron woman after she smacked an officer several times in the face Wednesday at a grocery store.
Alexandria Lowery, 20, was charged with assault on a police officer while police charged her boyfriend Bo Bogard, 26, of Norwalk, with resisting arrest and served him five bench warrants.
Officers got a report of a green SUV squealing its tires at about 8 p.m. in Gardner’s Super Value parking lot.
On arrival they spotted the SUV but nobody was inside so officers walked into the grocery store to find the driver.
There they spotted Bo Bogard, 26, of Norwalk, who was wanted on several bench warrants.
When Bogard saw officers he tried to duck out of the store by a different exit but police blocked the way.
He denied squealing his tires but officers tried to arrest him on the warrant.
When Bogard started to struggle with officers Lowery jumped in and slapped an officer several times in the face and head, Norwalk police Sgt. Seth Fry said.
“At one point I think she was on his back,” Fry said.
When another officer arrived Lowery and Bogard were arrested.
Lowery was booked into to the Huron County Jail on $10,000 bond while Bogard’s bond was set at $4,000.
Both posted bond and were released Thursday.
