MANKATO — A young woman allegedly bit a police officer during a disturbance at the Mankato hospital on Halloween.
Hailey Annmarie Ingles, 21, of Le Sueur, was charged with felony and gross misdemeanor counts of assaulting a police officer and gross misdemeanor obstructing the legal process Thursday in Blue Earth County District Court.
Ingles' boyfriend was a patient in the emergency room and they refused orders to separate themselves Wednesday morning, according to a court complaint. Ingles allegedly fought with a Mankato police officer who pulled them apart and bit the officer's arm.
The patient has not been charged.
