NH woman faces felony for allegedly assaulting EMT workers who came to help her

MONT VERNON, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire woman faces a felony charge after she allegedly assaulted three emergency medical technicians called to her Mont Vernon home on Monday. When the EMTs arrived, they found the woman, 28, sitting on her lawn. She said she was having trouble breathing.

After being asked a question, the woman allegedly headbutted two of the EMTs and then assaulted the third who tried to help.

The New Hampshire Union Leader said that before police arrived, the EMTs suffered broken bones, bites and bruises.

The woman was arrested Thursday on a number of charges. She's being held for lack of bail and is due in court later this month.

The EMTs were all treated for their injuries.
