A Cranbrook resident is currently in custody for theft, resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.
At around 9:30 pm Monday night, Cranbrook RCMP received a call from a local bar advising that a woman had walked into their cooler, taken a case of beer, and walked out the door.
Police were in the area and located the suspect with another person, and the case of beer.
RCMP arrested a man and after putting him in the car attempted to arrest the woman. She began to yell and tried to walk away.
The officer gained control and attempted to place her in handcuffs, when the woman bit the police officer on the arm and continued to struggle.
She was eventually put in handcuffs and placed in the back of the police vehicle.
The 54-year-old Cranbrook resident will appear in court Tuesday.
