The woman was taken into custody and transported to Chatham-Kent Police headquarters.

The 23 year-old Dover Township woman was charged with assault with a weapon, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, and resist peace officer. She was transported to the court house and released with conditions, pending a future court date of August 12.
