Woman accused of assaulting Sidney police officer to face trial
A 41-year-old woman charged with assaulting a police officer in Sidney will face trial
Tammy Stansbury was bound over to district court Friday following a preliminary hearing on a charge of third degree assault on an officer, a class four felony.
An arrest affidavit says two officers were dispatched to the U.S. Recycling plant to deal with a woman who had been asked to leave.
The officers say that during their attempts to talk to and then arrest Stansbury and take her to jail, she kicked one in the midsection, spit on him and bit him. The officers also say Stansbury threatened the officer's family.
The felony count carries a maximum prison term of five years.
Stansbury remained in custody on $10,000 bail pending a June 12th arraignment in Cheyenne County Court.
