MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo woman is accused of kicking a Minot police officer in the stomach.

Authorities allege 25-year-old Faith Vettleson resisted officers who were trying to put her in detox on Sunday, and kicked an officer in the stomach twice.

Police say she later became unresponsive in jail and was taken to the hospital, where her blood-alcohol level was measured at about three times the legal limit for driving.

The Minot Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/29Hwlod ) that Vettleson made an initial court appearance this week on a felony assault charge that carries a maximum punishment of five years in prison. She could enter a plea at an Aug. 18 hearing.

Court documents do not list an attorney for Vettleson, and a home telephone listing could not be found.
