COLORADO SPRINGS– Colorado Springs Police say a woman was arrested in Colorado Springs after crashing her car and assaulting an officer and a paramedic.

23-year-old Stevie Maria Adrian was arrested on charges of first degree assault on a peace officer, second degree assault on a paramedic, cruelty to animals, DUI, and other traffic related charges.

Around 8:00 p.m., Colorado Springs Police officers responded to the intersection of N. Powers and N. Carefree Circle for a suspected DUI driver.
