MILFORD, Del.- Milford police have arrested a Houston, Del. woman accused of assaulting a police officer during a response to a domestic call.

According to police, officers responded to a home on the 200 block of Marshall Street on the night of Feb. 6 for a domestic dispute. Police said 24-year-old Ashley J. Remington, of Houston, was intoxicated and refused to obey the officer's commands. Remington was cursing at the officer and breaking items belonging to a 43-year-old man inside of the home, police said. As the officer attempted to take Remington into custody, police said she struck him in the torso and repeatedly fought back, causing an injury to the officer's hand.

Police said further investigation revealed that Remington had showed up at 43-year-old man's home after being told that they were no longer in a relationship. According to police, the man told officers that Remington climbed on the roof of his home, and became irate when asked to leave. Police said Remington hit the man in the face and head.

Police said Remington's resistance continued while she was in custody, where she rammed her head into the wall inside the holding cell. An officer held Remington to prevent her from causing further damage, until medical personnel transported her to a nearby medical facility for treatment and evaluation, police said.

Remington was charged with second-degree assault injuring a law enforcement officer, felony resisting arrest with force, third-degree assault, first-degree criminal trespass and criminal mischief under $1,500. Remington was arraigned and released after posting $7,500 secured bond.
