(COLUMBUS) - A Columbus woman was arrested after attacking a police officer and a paramedic after creating a disturbance at a hotel Tuesday night.

Police arrested 47-year-old Sarah I. Boyd on charges of battery of a public safety official, public intoxication and disorderly conduct.

The incident happened just before 10 p.m. at the Days Inn on Jonathan Moore Pike in Columbus, according to Lt. Matt Harris, of the Columbus Police Department.

Officers were called on a report of a drunk woman shouting in the hallway. Officers tried to get her to quiet down, but instead she became combative, scratching and kicking a CPD officer, Harris says. She was taken to the hospital to be checked out and allegedly spit at an EMT and scratched his arm, making it bleed, Harris says.

After being discharged from the hospital, she was taken to the Bartholomew County Jail.
