Ellsworth Police Log Week of March 21

ELLSWORTH — Police arrested a man and woman from Franklin after the woman reportedly bit an officer on the hand and refused to let him into a hotel room to check on a report of an assault, according to a press release.

Officers were dispatched to a local motel on Saturday night after a call that a man had assaulted another man in one of the rooms, Police Chief Glenn Moshier said.

When police arrived, the alleged assaulter’s wife refused to let officers into the room, Moshier said, and then bit one of them on his hand. The officer had gloves on, Moshier said, and the bite did not break the skin.
