MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - A Mitchell woman is accused of striking a police officer in the face with a used feminine hygiene product.

Forty-one-year-old Ada Morales pleaded not guilty in May to two charges of aggravated assault against a law enforcement officer and other counts including resisting arrest and intentionally causing contact with bodily fluids. She is scheduled for trial in October.

The Daily Republic newspaper reports that Morales is accused of throwing a soiled feminine hygiene product in the face of a police officer who responded to a mental illness call. She also allegedly sprayed the officer with cleaning items and attacked another officer, knocking off his glasses and scratching him.
