BOARDMAN, Ohio (WYTV) – Boardman Police arrested a woman Saturday evening, charging her with domestic violence and assaulting a police officer after they say she resisted arrest, tried to bite an officer, then kicked another in the groin.

Authorities charged Melissa Riddick, 41, with obstructing official business, resisting arrest and aggravated menacing in addition to the domestic violence and assault charges.

According to a police report, a boy who said Riddick was his mother told police who arrived at a home on Carter Circle in Boardman that Riddick was intoxicated and fighting with his older brother. The boy said his mom bit him, which she later confirmed, according to the report.
