A Muscatine woman was charged with assault on an officer and interference with official acts.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Katherine Brooker, 31, was charged Tuesday for allegedly assaulting peace officers and others and interference with official acts.

Brooker was reportedly lying on a bench in the Washington and Dubuque Street area when officers arrived. According to the report, Brooker had slurred speech, red and watery eyes, and could not answer questions.

Brooker allegedly resisted the arrest and refused to walk to the police car, the report said. Brooker was reportedly on her back in the car when she kicked an office in the face.

Interference with official acts is a simple misdemeanor punishable of up to 30 days in jail and a fine of up to $625.

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