Iowa City police arrested a female University of Iowa student after she allegedly assaulted her roommates and a police officer.

Sarah Kirts, 19, 353 S. Gilbert St. Apt. 2224, was charged Tuesday with assault on peace officers and others.

According to police reports, officers were called to the apartment because Kirts was allegedly assaulting her roommates. Kirts tried to block the door when officers arrived, and after her roommates let officers enter the house, she ran to her room and shut the door, the report said.

When police entered Kirts’ room and tried to put handcuffs on her, the woman allegedly fought with officers and kicked one, the report said.

While police were walking Kirts to her car, she screamed profanity at her roommates, police said.

Police also said Kirts admitted to drinking and refused blood alcohol tests and medical care.

Assault on a peace officer and others is a serious misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum of one year in jail and a fine of up to $1,875.
