At approx. 4:50 PM on Saturday, officers were called to an address in the 500 block of Louise Ave for an intoxicated female that was engaged in self harm.  Upon arrival the officers located the 16 year old female who was armed with a knife.  She appeared to be under the influence of a drug and alcohol. The officers attempted to control the youth and a struggle ensued during which she bit one of the officers on the leg. She was taken to BRHC for clearance and then held until sober.  She has since been released with a future court date charged with assaulting a peace officer.
