BELLMEAD (February 10, 2014) Catherine Hernandez, 31, of Bellmead, remained in the McLennan County Jail Monday charged with assault on a public servant after an officer was struck during a scuffle.

Her bond was set at $3,000.

Hernandez was arrested Sunday at the Bellmead Police Department after an officer was struck while police were ushering her out of the building, Bellmead police Detective Michael Miller said.

Officers were sent Sunday afternoon to the Delta Inn, in the 1300 block of Behrens Circle, after management at the motel reported a disturbance.

Miller said employees asked police to warn a woman off the property.

Officers took the woman to the police station to interview her and after that asked her to wait in the building's lobby for a ride.

As she waited she became angry and was asked to leave, at which time she began fighting with officers, Miller said.

During the disturbance an officer was struck.
