Suspect Leaves Mark?

By  | 

A Meridian woman was arrested Friday and charged with simple assault on a police officer.

Bond for Sandra Powell was set at $10,000.

Powell allegedly bit an officer while he was placing her under arrest.

Police had responded to a domestic disturbance call at a local housing complex.

MPD spokesman Lt. Dean Harper said domestic violence calls are typically the most dangerous for law enforcement officers.

Harper said the officer involved has returned to active duty.
