CORNVILLE, Ariz. -- Authorities said a northern Arizona woman has been charged with assaulting a deputy.

The Yavapai County Sheriff's Office said 34-year-old Josie Owens has been released on bond since her arrest Sunday in Cornville.

Spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn said Owens' boyfriend, 36-year-old Jeremy Slaughter, reported she was acting erratically.

Deputies put her in the back of their vehicle, where she kicked one of them several times and kicked out the driver's side window of the vehicle taking her to Camp Verde Detention Center.

Owens is charged with several offenses, including assault on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest.

Authorities also booked Slaughter on disorderly conduct and criminal damage.

Two teenagers in the couple's home were removed by child welfare.
