A Nelson police officer has sustained an unusual injury while dealing with a suspect.
They were bitten in the leg by a woman who’d been brought to the station late Monday night.
The initial call came after tenants and the landlord complained of the woman who had refused to leave a downtown residence and was threatening others.
She refused to ID herself and as police arrested her she became combative .
Officers got her back to the station but that’s when she took up the fight again, this time biting an officer in the leg.
She’s facing several charges including assaulting a police officer.
