That officer was able to hold both people until more officers arrived. The man was cited for obstruction.

The girl was arrested for 2nd Degree Assault on a Peace Officer. She was taken to a hospital, where she then spit in a 2nd officer’s face. She is currently being held in a juvenile detention facility.

The officer was treated for minor injuries.
