A TORQUAY woman will face court next month after she allegedly bit a police officer.
The alleged incident occurred when Hervey Bay police attended a Torquay Terrace address about 6pm on Friday night.
Police tried to restrain the 39-year-old when she bit an officer on the forearm.
The woman was taken to Hervey Bay Hospital, then later charged with serious assault of a police officer, and obstructing police.
Both charges will be heard at Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on June 8.
