“A traffic stop was conducted with the person, found to be breaching her conditions, at which time, the member took her into custody and a scuffle ensued,” said Cst. Geoff Applegate with the Humboldt-Lanigan RCMP.

“As a result of that incident, that 24 year old female from Saskatoon was charged with assaulting a police officer, uttering threats, resisting arrest, two counts of breaching of probation, as well as charged under the Traffic Safety Act for driving without a valid driver's licence.”

The woman was taken into custody and appeared in court April 3.
