A 31-YEAR-OLD Mossman woman faced Cairns court yesterday after allegedly biting a police officer on Tuesday.
Officers were called to an incident at a Lund Street address at around 5.30pm and the woman arrested over a domestic disturbance.
Police allege that as officers tried to walk the woman to the police vehicle, she physically resisted then bit a 31-year-old male officer on the wrist.
The woman was subsequently placed in the rear of the vehicle and transported to the Mossman police station.
The officer attended the Mossman Hospital for medical treatment.
The woman was charged with one count each of serious assault and obstructing police and appeared in Cairns Magistrates Court yesterday.
