BELLEVUE, Wash. (AP) - Police in Bellevue, Washington, say a female postal worker accused of striking a pedestrian three times with her marked postal service vehicle while “laughing hysterically” has been arrested for investigation of assault.

Officer Seth Tyler says police responding to an assault report Friday in front of Phantom Lake Elementary School learned that the man who was hit had been trying to photograph the postal vehicle. Tyler says the victim reported that he grew concerned after observing the postal worker yelling obscenities at another person and decided to take a photo of the vehicle in order to make a complaint to the U.S. Postal Service.

Tyler says the victim was not injured although his leg was hit by the vehicle.

The spokesman says a 55-year-old Newcastle woman was arrested for investigation of fourth-degree assault, interviewed by Bellevue police and USPS inspectors and sent to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for a mental evaluation.
