Woodland woman accused of assaulting police officer

A woman was arrested this morning after allegedly assaulting a Woodland police officer as he attempted to take her into custody.

Officers were called to a car wash at 120 W. Lincoln Ave. about 8:48 a.m. regarding a report of a woman yelling, throwing objects and hitting the curb with a metal object.

An officer arrived and identified the woman as Ruby Marina Lucero, 33, of Woodland. She became physically combative with the officer, and a second officer arrived to assist in trying to handcuff the woman, according to a Police Department news release.

Police said Lucero broke free from officers and struck the first officer in the head several times with handcuffs. The officer suffered several cuts to his head and elbows.

Additional officers arrived and gained control of Lucero, taking her into custody without further incident.

Lucero was taken to Woodland Memorial Hospital for routine medical clearance, police said. The injured officer also was treated at the hospital and returned to duty.

Lucero was booked into Yolo County Jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, felony resisting an officer and possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine.

Police ask anyone with additional information regarding the incident to call the department at (530) 661-7800, or (530) 666-2411. Callers can remain anonymous.
