Lincoln woman arrested for assaulting an officer

Lincoln police arrested a woman after she refused to leave a stranger's home and bit an officer.

Officer Katie Flood says 23-year-old Martha Joseph walked into a home near 19th and “G” streets around 10 am. on Saturday.

Flood says after she walked in, Joseph took off all her clothes and refused to leave.  She says Joseph was clearly drunk and believed she had gone to her relative's home.

Officers took Joseph to the hospital after she began having breathing problems.  Flood says, while she was there, she became combative with the staff trying to treat her and bit an officer on the forearm.

Police arrested Joseph for Assault on a Police Officer, Criminal Trespass, Disturbing the Peace, Failure to Comply and Resisting Arrest.
