As police outside worked to deescalate the tense situation, other officers quietly entered the home and made their way upstairs to the second floor where the woman as located. As the officers attempted to take the woman into custody, that's when the struggle ensued the news station said.
During the struggle, 25-year-old, Angela Theriault, allegedly assaulted multiple officers from the South Portland Police Department. They were finally able to take her into custody following the alleged assault.
