A woman is accused of assaulting a pair of Santa Fe police officers as they tried to arrest for another crime.

On Monday, police were called to a home in the 5800 block of FM 646 S. When officers got there, they found two female victims who claimed they were assaulted by their roommate, Amber Garen.

Garen was spotted in a nearby yard, but fled as officers approached. After a chase, officers were attempted to take her into custody, but they say Garen fought back, kicking, punching and even biting the officers.

Garen, 22, was charged with assault on a public servant, evading arrest and assault causing bodily injury. She is being held at the Galveston County Jail on $12,500 bond.
