FORT BRAGG, Calif. — A woman was arrested in Fort Bragg after striking a deputy in the face with an open hand while officials were responding to a possible domestic violence call, according to the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office.
On Feb. 6 deputies got a call for service on 29000 block of Hwy 20 in Fort Bragg where they'd learned 52-year-old Doris Camp was possibly in a physical fight. When they arrived, deputies found Camp hysterical in front of her home, and officials say they learned no assault took place. While they talked to Camp's partner in front of the home, the MCSO says Camp charged at her partner and didn't listen to verbal commands.
"As a deputy moved to intervene and stop Camp, she intentionally struck the deputy in the face with an open hand and caused visible injury," the MCSO said in a press release. "Camp was taken into custody immediately after a brief struggle."
Camp was booked into the Mendocino County Jail for battery on a peace officer and resisting a peace officer, according to the MCSO, who says her bail was set at $15,000. Following the arrest, deputies say they determined no crime had occurred between Camp and her partner.
