PITTSBURGH (AP) - Prosecutors have withdrawn the most serious charges against a western Pennsylvania woman accused of having assaulted her boyfriend and some Pittsburgh police officers who tried to arrest her.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1iBpAZ7 ) reports that the action came Tuesday after 20-year-old Amber Kabina waived her right to a preliminary hearing in Allegheny County.

Witnesses said Kabina had assaulted her boyfriend, who told authorities that she thought he had been flirting with another woman at a concert.

Police said that when they tried to arrest her, she kicked an officer in the chest with both feet, bit an officer, tried to get an officer’s stun gun and tried to head-butt an officer.

Felony counts of assault and disarming an officer were withdrawn, leaving simple assault, resisting arrest and public drunkenness charges.
