Vt. police: Woman throws knife, injuring officer

Posted: Updated:

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Police in Burlington say a woman who was zapped by a stun gun threw a knife at an officer, injuring the officer.

Burlington police say the officer was checking on a woman who was bleeding and holding a knife to her neck and threatening to further harm herself when police used a stun gun on her.

Police say Burlington resident Amy Beede threw the knife, hitting the officer in the leg. The officer suffered minor injuries.

Beede has been arrested on a charge of aggravated assault on a police officer. She's been jailed and can't be reached for comment. She's expected to be arraigned Wednesday.

It's unclear if Beede has a lawyer. She has no listed home telephone number.
