A Lancaster Street woman originally arrested for alleged assault racked up a slew of additional charges after police say she kicked and punched the officer trying to take her into custody.

Haverhill Police Officer Caitlin Brady was dispatched to 30 Lancaster St. last week for a report that Lisa Ricker allegedly assaulted another person and destroyed property shortly after 8 p.m. Thursday. During the booking process at the Bailey Boulevard police station, 56-year-old Ricker allegedly kicked and punched Officer Brady, spokesman Capt. Robert Pistone told WHAV. Brady was not injured and was able to get Ricker under control.

As a result, Ricker was charged with three separate assault and battery charges—including on a police officer—as well as assault with a dangerous weapon (shod foot). She also must answer to destruction of property and disorderly conduct offenses.
