A 43-year-old woman will appear in the Hamilton District Court this morning after she allegedly kicked a Thames constable in the head yesterday afternoon.

Police were called to an address on Harvey Crescent following reports of disorderly behaviour, according to Thames community constable Nigel Smith.

''I can't tell you exactly when the constable was kicked, however the woman was intoxicated and arrested for assault with intent to injure and disorderly behaviour,'' he said.

But a report on the Thames Police Facebook page said the constable was responding to a call regarding people drunk and fighting in the street when the alleged assault occurred.

Despite suffering some bruising the constable was able to continue his shift.

Smith said the woman was later charged with wilful damage after a police cell mattress was destroyed.

''She was then transferred to Hamilton and will appear in court today,'' he said.

A second woman at the address was also arrested for disorderly behaviour and is also expected to appear in court today.
