SOUTHINGTON - A Terryville woman has been accused of kicking a police officer.
Police said Thursday that Megan Rossignol, 23, kicked an officer in the upper thigh on Saturday. The officer was not injured.
Police said they had been called to Center Street on the report of a suspicious person who ran into some bushes and knocked over a garbage can. Police located Rossignol, who acted “belligerent and appeared to be intoxicated,” according to police.
Police said Rossignol yelled profanities and kicked the officer while police were attempting to interact with her. She faces charges of attempted assault on an officer, second-degree breach of peace and disorderly conduct.
Rossignol was taken into custody and transported to an area medical center to be evaluated. She was allegedly belligerent with medical personnel in an ambulance and once she arrived at the hospital.
Rossignol is free without having to post bond and is scheduled to appear in Bristol Superior Court on March 28.
