A Springfield woman accused of biting and punching a police officer was indicted by a Clark County Grand Jury this week.

Stacy Rife, 32, was indicted on a charge of assault in Clark County Common Pleas Court.

She is charged in connection with an incident that started when Springfield police responded to the 1100 block of Buckeye Street. There, they found medics treating Rife, a police report says.

“Ms. Rife became combative inside her vehicle,” the report says. “Ms. Rife was removed from the car by (an officer). During the course of removing Ms. Rife, she began fighting with (officers).”

Rife bit one of the officers on the left knee, the report says, and tried to bite him a second time unsuccessfully.
