SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP) — Police in western Ohio say a deputy used his stun gun to subdue a woman who kicked him repeatedly and punched him.

The Clark County Sheriff’s deputy wasn’t hurt early today. His name wasn’t released.

Authorities say the 38-year-old woman was charged with assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and obstruction. She was taken to the Clark County Jail and authorities say a mental health evaluation is planned.

Police were at her home after responding to a call from a person who said her Facebook page indicated she could be suicidal and a threat to her mother.
